Import into a node

Importing (or ingesting) data can be done by running a pipeline that ends with the import sink operator. When managing a pipeline through the app or the API, all pipeline operators run within the node. When using the CLI, at least the import operator runs within the node.

Consider this example that takes a Zeek conn.log from our M57 dataset:

from file Zeek/conn.log read zeek-tsv
| select id.orig_h, id.resp_h, orig_bytes, resp_bytes
| where orig_bytes > 1 Mi
| import

The import operator requires a node execution context. To invoke the above pipeline successfully, you need to deploy a node first.
