Example: Multi-column sensors
Multi-column sensors collect multiple pieces of related data in a single answer from each Tanium Client.
When you create a sensor (see Create a sensor), its script must add a delimiter between each property as it writes to the standard output channel. The delimiter in the script must match the delimiter in the Use delimiter field of the sensor configuration. In the following example, the delimiter is the pipe | character.
For multi-column sensors, when you configure sensor settings, select Split into multiple columns, specify a string separator (a pipe | is common), and use the controls to specify the columns. Note that when creating questions that filter multi-column sensors, single-column filtering works only if the sensor definition specifies column delimiters with a single character (such as "|"), not multiple characters (such as "|:").
