This document will cover installing Vector on CentOS.
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
