Amazon Linux is an operating system generally used on AWS. This document will cover how to install Vector on this operating system.
The daemon deployment strategy is designed for data
collection on a single host. Vector runs in the background, in its own process,
collecting all data for that host.
Typically data is collected from a process manager, such as Journald via
journald source, but can be collected
through any of Vector's sources.
The following diagram demonstrates how it works.
Download the Vector
.rpmfilecurl -O https://packages.timber.io/vector/0.9.X/vector-aarch64.rpm
