As of August 2020, Sysdig has changed its upgrade procedure.
All on-premises installations and upgrades are now scheduled with and guided by Sysdig technical account managers and professional services division. See Oversight Services Now Offered for All Installs and Upgrades.
For customers, the instructions in this section are for review purposes only.
Sysdig platform on-premise releases are listed here. Each release has a version number and specific Release Notes.
Sysdig On-Premise version 2435 replaces v2304, v2266, and v2172. Versions 2304 and 2266 are hotfix releases. Version 2172 is a major release.
Sysdig On-Premise version 2435 includes the following changes:
Dashboards upgraded from v1 to v2: This update happens automatically.
However, if you have saved v1 dashboards and need to reapply them, follow these instructions: Migrate Saved Dashboards from V1 to V2.
Architecture Change in the ContainersIn previous releases, there was a single backend container which ran several processes.
As of version 2435, the processes have been divided into unique containers, following container best practices.
As a result, it is necessary to apply the entire configuration, not simply change the image version. Follow the instructions below.
If you have licensed and will run only Sysdig Monitor, then you upgrade fewer components than if you also use Sysdig Secure, as described below.
