The batch operator is used to batch multiple events and send them in a bulk fashion. It also allows to set a timeout of how long the operator should wait for a batch to be filled.

This operator batches both the event payload and event metadata into a single bulk event. Downstream pipeline nodes or offramps will receive 1 such bulk event but will treat its context as multiple events and might act different e.g. when it comes to building a request payload in the offramp context or other use cases. Empty bulk events are usually considered as no event.

Supported configuration options are:

  • count - Elements per batch
  • timeout - Maximum delay between the first element of a batch and the last element of a batch, in nanoseconds.


  • out


The following operator will batch up to 300 events into one, if they arrive within 1 second. Otherwise, after 1 second, it will emit the amount of events it batched up within the past second.

use std::nanos;

define operator batch from generic::batch
count = 300,
timeout = nanos::from_seconds(1)
