Configuring Sysdig Agent

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

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.
