Configuring Sysdig Agent
You can edit the agent configuration file to extend the default behavior, including additional metrics for JMX, StatsD, Prometheus, or a wide range of other monitoring integrations.
Use this section when you need to change the default or pre-defined settings by editing the agent configuration files.
For the latest helm-based installation instructions and configuration options, see sysdig-deploy.
The Sysdig configuration library lists all the major configurations supported by Sysdig agent components. This document is evolving and will be updated as new configurations are added to the product.
Agent modes provide the ability to control metric collection to fit your scale and specific requirements. Using the appropriate mode for a specific environment helps reduce the amount of resources (CPU and memory) that the agent consumes and the number of metrics that the agent collects.
