The KX Insights Platform C SDK can be used to ingest data into the KX Insights Platform over the Reliable Transport (RT) protocol.

Supported Operating Systems

The driver is supported on the following operating systems:

  • CentOS 8 or later
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 8 or later

The SDKs are only supported on Linux running on x86 architectures. We currently do not support Windows or OsX.
