Tyk Pump

Traffic analytics are captured by the Gateway nodes and then temporarily stored in Redis. The Tyk Pump is responsible for moving those analytics into a persistent data store, such as MongoDB, where the traffic can be analyzed.

What is the Tyk Pump?

The Tyk Pump is our open source analytics purger that moves the data generated by your Tyk nodes to any back-end. It is primarily used to display your analytics data in the Tyk Dashboard.


The Tyk Pump is not currently configurable in our Tyk Cloud solution.
