Azure Event Hub is a highly scalable data streaming platform and event ingestion service that can receive and process millions of events per second. Events, data, and telemetry generated by distributed software and devices can be processed and stored by Event Hubs.

Any real-time analytics provider or batching/storage adapter can be used to transform and store data sent to an Event Hub.

Event Hubs serve as the on ramp for Big Data because of their ability to provide publish-subscribe capabilities with low la tency and at massive scale.

Update status

  • Customers can update the status of the Event Hub resource by clicking on the Update status option and selecting one among the list of available options.

Inline task

  • In the Event Hub section, users can create a really quick task to send events from the source Event Hub that is being explored.

  • The configuration created to run immediately can also be saved for future use in the Automated Tasks section.

Inline task to send events

This feature allows users to quickly send events to Event Hub by providing the following inputs:

  • Event message
  • Key
  • Value
  • Event data count
  • Configuration name (if Save configuration is enabled)

The following illustration shows sending 10 events to the Event Hub.

Task status can be viewed by navigating to the Automated Tasks section and switching to the Task history tab.

Automated task

  • Consider a scenario in which a single Azure Subscription contains multiple Event Hubs, and the customer wants to send events to the desired Event Hub.

  • The Automated Task feature of Serverless360 makes it possible to accomplish such scenarios.
