Developing custom ETLs
You can create custom ETLs to extend data collection capabilities of BMC Helix Capacity Optimization. These custom ETLs can be used to collect data from a variety of data sources according to your requirement.
Both out-of-the-box and custom ETLs rely on the ETL Development API that is provided by BMC Helix Capacity Optimization to integrate data.
The ETL Development API supports Java and Perl programming languages. Before developing a new custom ETL, BMC recommends checking if an existing out-of-the-box ETL that provides the same capabilities is already available for use. You can use the ETL Development Kit (EDK) for creating and managing custom ETLs. For more information, see Creating and managing custom ETLs.
