High-level information about a stream includes:

  • The name and status of the stream.
  • The source and destination connection profiles that the stream uses to transfer data from a source database to a destination bucket in Cloud Storage.
  • The profile types of the connection profiles.
  • The region where the stream is established.
  • Any labels added to the stream.
  • When the stream was created or last updated.

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.
