Need an efficient feature, or path (e.g. API endpoint) to export Raw Flow data from SevOne for consumption over Kafka. SDB does this, but only for metrics. Attempts to use SevOne-act (as a way to work around the SDB limitation) result in long export times, would not scale, and would not be supported by IBM.
