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.

For the latest helm-based installation instructions and configuration options, see sysdig-deploy.

Monitoring 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.
