Observe destination plugin

Observe is a cloud-native monitoring and analytics platform that provides visibility into the performance and behavior of modern distributed systems. With Observe, you can collect, store, and analyze telemetry data from a variety of sources, including logs, metrics, and traces, and gain insights into system behavior and performance. The Observe destination plugin in Calyptia Core lets you integrate your telemetry data with the Observe platform, allowing you to transmit your data to Observe for further processing and analysis. With the Observe destination plugin, you can configure your Calyptia Core pipeline to send your data to Observe through HTTPS, allowing you to control the format and structure of your data.
