Receiving Events via File


This application demonstrates how to use siddhi-io-file for receiving.


  1. Edit this sample file by replacing {WSO2SIHome} with the absolute path of your WSO2SI home directory.
  2. Save this sample.

Executing the Sample:

  1. Start the Siddhi application by clicking on 'Run'.
  2. If the Siddhi application starts successfully, the following messages would be shown on the console.
    ReceiveEventsFromFile.siddhi - Started Successfully!
  3. Check the directories {WSO2SIHome}/samples/artifacts/ReceiveEventsFromFile/files/consumed and new.
  4. All the files which were in the directory new should have been moved to consumed directory.


If the sample is not running and producing output, do the following first. * Move all the files in {WSO2SIHome}/samples/artifacts/ReceiveEventsFromFile/files/consumed directory to {WSO2SIHome}/samples/artifacts/ReceiveEventsFromFile/files/new. * Delete all the files in consumed and sink directories.

Viewing the Results:

Processed output events will be logged in the console as follows:

INFO {} - ReceiveEventsFromFile: event, StreamEvent{ timestamp=1513847875990, beforeWindowData=null, onAfterWindowData=null, outputData=[apache, 80.0, 2.0], type=CURRENT, next=null}
INFO {} - ReceiveEventsFromFile: event, StreamEvent{ timestamp=1513847876004, beforeWindowData=null, onAfterWindowData=null, outputData=[cloudbees, 134.4, 2.0], type=CURRENT, next=null}


@source(type='file', mode='text.full',
define stream SweetProductionStream (name string, amount double);

from SweetProductionStream#window.time(1 min)
select name, sum(amount) as hourlyTotal, convert(time:extract('HOUR', time:currentTimestamp(), 'yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm:ss'), 'double') as currentHour
insert into LowProductionAlertStream;

from LowProductionAlertStream#log('event')
