About Streams Data Collection

You can implement Streams in addition to Webtrends Analytics, or by itself.

Streams has its own data collection server, scs.webtrends, which can run in parallel with the analytics data collection server, statse.webtrends. Both use the Webtrends 10.2 JavaScript tag.

streams_data_collection_flow

Data collection using the analytics data collection server statse.webtrends (green flow) and without using statse.webtrends (blue flow).

Event data is captured, processed, and made available to applications and visualizations via web sockets and the Webtrends Streams API. Streams can be implemented without an analytics implementation.

For best results, use the same DCSID you are using for your Webtrends Analytics implementation also for Streams. If needed, you may use a separate DCSID for Streams.
