## Brief Overview of Snap Architecture

For an overiew of Snap checkout: [](

Snap is an open and modular telemetry framework designed to simplify the
collection, processing and publishing of data through a single HTTP based API.
Plugins provide the functionality of collection, processing and publishing and
can be loaded/unloaded, upgraded and swapped without requiring a restart of the
Snap daemon.

A Snap plugin is a program that responds to a set of well defined
[gRPC]( services with parameters and return types specified
as protocol buffer messages (see
The Snap daemon handshakes with the plugin over stdout and then communicates over gRPC.

### Before writing a Snap plugin:

* See if one already exists in the
[Plugin Catalog](
* See if someone mentioned it in the
[plugin wishlist](

If you do decide to write a plugin, open a new issue following the plugin
[wishlist guidelines](
and let us know you are working on one!
