Subject [Discuss] Geo Enrichment with Stellar
Date Wed, 25 Jan 2017 21:32:02 GMT
As part of Justin's work on PR 421
<https://github.com/apache/incubator-metron/pull/421> [1], he added a
rather slick little Stellar function that lets you query for location data
based on an IP; GEO_GET("200.200.200.200").

We currently use a separate bolt to perform geo-enrichment.  With Justin's
PR and a little additional work, it would be possible to replace the
existing mechanism for geo-enrichment, with one driven by Stellar.
Geo-enrichment just becomes a Stellar function call.

The advantage here is that it could...

   - Simplify the configuration for the user
   - Simplify the underlying enrichment topology

I may be reaching a little too far, but it might be possible to collapse
all forms of enrichment to Stellar.  Hmm... that might be interesting.

See the original discussion here.
