Learn about Genesys Info Mart architecture
Genesys Info Mart is the historical reporting back-end service that performs extract, transform, and load (ETL) processing of data generated by contact center activity. Genesys Info Mart comprises the following services:
- GIM Config Adapter (GCA) — Reads configuration data from the contact center Configuration Server database and stores the data into Kafka topics for consumption during transformation processing. There is a separate GCA service for each tenant.
- GIM Stream Processor (GSP) — Processes GCA-sourced configuration data as well as raw event data streamed to Kafka from upstream services handling interaction and agent activity on Voice and Digital channels. GSP transforms the data into data structures suitable for a data mart for contact center historical reporting.
- GIM — Pulls the transformed data from Kafka and loads this data into the Info Mart database. The GIM service also performs other database-related tasks, such as a regular maintenance job and an export job to export Info Mart data. There is a separate GIM service and Info Mart database for each tenant.
All the Genesys Info Mart services are stateful. This has implications for high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR) (see High availability and disaster recovery) as well as for upgrade methods, because you cannot deploy mirrored services in parallel.
Unless you are using a single namespace for an OpenShift deployment, each Genesys Info Mart service is in its own namespace.

Architecture diagram — Data flows
The numbers on the connection lines refer to the connection numbers in the table that follows the diagrams. The direction of the arrows indicates the direction of data flows.
Architecture diagram — Connections
The numbers on the connection lines refer to the connection numbers in the table that follows the diagrams. The direction of the arrows indicates where the connection is initiated (the source) and where an initiated connection connects to (the destination), from the point of view of Genesys Info Mart as a service in the network.
The connection numbers refer to the numbers on the connection lines in the diagrams. The Source, Destination, and Connection Classification columns in the table relate to the direction of the arrows in the Connections diagram above: The source is where the connection is initiated, and the destination is where an initiated connection connects to, from the point of view of Genesys Info Mart as a service in the network. Egress means the Genesys Info Mart service is the source, and Ingress means the Genesys Info Mart service is the destination. Intra-cluster means the connection is between services in the cluster.
