In addition to viewing high-level information about a stream, you can click a stream to see additional information, including:
- The regions where the stream is stored. Streams, like all resources, are saved in a region. Streams can only use connection profiles and private connectivity configurations that are in the same region.
- Any labels added to the stream. These labels are used to organize the stream.
- The tables and schemas in the source database that the stream can read from.
- The tables and schemas in the source database that the stream is restricted from reading.
- Whether historical backfill is enabled or disabled for the stream.
- If it's enabled, how many schemas and tables in the source database are excluded from backfilling.
- The folder of the destination bucket into which the stream transfers schemas, tables, and data from a source database.
- The size (in MBytes) of files that Datastream will attempt to write to the Cloud Storage destination bucket.
- A graph showing the amount of data and number of events that are processed by the stream. For more information about evaluating these data and events, see Monitor a stream.
