(Legacy) Integrations for Sysdig Monitor

Integrate metrics with Sysdig Monitor from a number of platforms, orchestrators, and a wide range of applications. Sysdig collects metrics from Prometheus, JMX, StatsD, Kubernetes, and many application stacks to provide a 360-degree view of your infrastructure. Many metrics are collected by default out of the box; you can also extend the integration or create custom metrics.

Key Benefits

  • Collects the richest data set for cloud-native visibility and security

  • Polls data, auto-discover context in order to provide operational and security insights

  • Extends the power of Prometheus metrics with additional insights from other metrics types and infrastructure stack

  • Integrate Prometheus alert and events for Kubernetes monitoring needs

  • Expose application metrics using Java JMX and MBeans monitoring

Key Integrations


  • Prometheus Metrics

    Describes how Sysdig Agent enables automatically collecting metrics from Prometheus exporters, how to set up your environment, and scrape Prometheus metrics from local as well as remote hosts.

  • Java Management Extention (JMX) Metrics

    Describes how to configure your Java virtual machines so Sysdig Agent can collect JMX metrics using the JMX protocol.

  • StatsD Metrics

    Describes how the Sysdig agent collects custom StatsD metrics with an embedded StatsD server.

  • Node.JS Metrics

    Illustrates how Sysdig is able to monitor node.js applications by linking a library to the node.js codebase.

  • Integrate Applications

    Describes the monitoring capabilities of Sysdig agent with application check scripts or ‘app checks’.

  • AWS CloudWatch

    Illustrates how to configure Sysdig to collect various types of CloudWatch metrics.

  • Agent Installation

    Learn how to install Sysdig agents on supported platforms.


  • Notification Channels

    Learn how to add, edit, or delete a variety of notification channel types, and how to disable or delete notifications when they are not needed, for example, during scheduled downtime.

  • S3 Capture Storage

    Learn how to configure Sysdig to use an AWS S3 bucket or custom S3 storage for storing Capture files.

Platform Metrics (IBM)

For Sysdig instances deployed on IBM Cloud Monitoring with Sysdig, an additional form of metrics collection is offered: Platform metrics. Rather than being collected by the Sysdig agent, when enabled, Platform metrics are reported to Sysdig directly by the IBM Cloud infrastructure.

Platform metrics are metrics that are exposed by enabled services across the IBM Cloud platform. These services have made metrics and pre-defined dashboards for their services available by publishing metrics associated with the customer’s space or account. Customers can view these platform metrics alongside the metrics from their applications and other services within IBM Cloud monitoring.

Enable this feature by logging into the IBM Cloud console and selecting “Enable” for IBM Platform metrics under the Configure your resource section when creating a new IBM Cloud Monitoring with a Sysdig instance, as described here.
