Agent Installation

Sysdig agents are delivered as either a container or a service, and can be deployed with or without an orchestrator such as Kubernetes or Mesos.

A quick install involves just a few lines of code from the Installation Wizard or the Settings > Agent Installation page, copied into a shell. (See Agent Installation: Overview and Key.) The complete install instructions address checking for and installing kernel headers if needed, any prerequisite permissions settings for particular environments, and tips about updating the configuration files after initial installation.
