Sysdig Documentation

Agent Configuration

Out of the box, the Sysdig agent will gather and report on a wide variety of pre-defined metrics. It can also accommodate any number of custom parameters for additional metrics collection.

Use this section when you need to change the default or pre-defined settings by editing the agent configuration files, or for other special circumstances.

Note

Sysdig Integrations also require editing the agent config files.

By default, the Sysdig agent is configured to collect metric data from a range of platforms and applications. You can edit the agent config files to extend the default behavior, including additional metrics for JMX, StatsD, Prometheus, or a wide range of other applications. You can also monitor log files for targeted text strings.
