Did you know that you can run external adapters from smart data streaming in managed, unmanaged, or cluster-managed mode? Read on to find out which mode best suits your needs.

Managed

Unmanaged

Cluster-managed

How it runs

When you start and stop the project to which the adapter is attached, this automatically starts and stops the adapter.

You start and stop the adapter independently of the project.

Start it using the start_adapter script.

You start and stop the adapter independently of the project.

Start it using the Streaming Adapters tile in SAP HANA Cockpit.

How to configure it

Attach the adapter to a project using the ATTACH ADAPTER statement. Edit its properties in studio.

Edit its properties in the XML configuration file. Specify the stream name, project name, and project URI so the adapter can successfully connect to and receive or publish data to the project.

When to use it

If you want less to manage and you’re not concerned about performance issues due to running the adapter on the same machine as your project.

If your adapter requires a lot of resources and you want to run it on a separate machine for optimal performance and scalability.

If you want to run the adapter on a separate machine from your project, but still want to manage it using the Cockpit.
