Google Cloud Storage Exporter

The Google Cloud Storage exporter will collect the data and create a new file in a specific folder everytime we send the data.

Everytime the FlushInterval or MaxEventInMemory is reached, a new file will be added to Google Cloud Storage.


If for some reason the Google Cloud Storage upload failed, we will keep the data in memory and retry to add it the next time we reach FlushInterval or MaxEventInMemory.

Check this complete example to see how to export the data in S3.
