Setting up a Source

What You Need to Know

Before you read this section make sure you understand the role of a DataTurbine source, and know the address of a working DataTurbine server.

There is no single “DataTurbine Source” that gathers any kind of data. A source is really just a class of program that puts data into DataTurbine.
