Time of Ingest


For real time ingest, we’d like to have a way to tell how long does it take from the event timestamp till the moment the record is ingested by Druid. Is there existing functionality in druid that can achieve that? For example, is there a way to get the timestamp of ingestion for each record?

You can issue timeBoundary queries to see the latest timestamp you’ve ingested, or include a unique ID in your event and try to filter for events with that unique ID with a timeseries query.

Take note that these beyonds will take into account network and query time and may not be 100% accurate as to when the event actually entered Druid.
