Sysdig Agents

This page shows all of the Sysdig Agents that have reported into the Sysdig backend, and enables the user to quickly determine:

  • Which agents are up-to-date, out of date, or approaching being out of date
  • Which managed clusters have been detected in your cloud environment, but have not yet been instrumented with the Sysdig agent

The feature is in Technology Preview status; additional functionality and refined the workflows will continue to be added.

Review Environment

Select Integrations > Data Sources | Sysdig Agents.

The resulting page shows all detected nodes in your environment and the status of the agents installed on them, or not. The view shows nodes detected from previously installed agents on hosts and from connected cloud accounts.

You can:

  • See at a Glance: Quickly identify where agents are installed: by node, cluster name, and/or cloud account ID
  • Know the Status: Check agent connection status and age
  • Search or Filter: Narrow the view by searching or filtering on node name, cluster name, ID, or cloud platform
  • Install or Troubleshoot: Link to quick steps for adding an agent or troubleshooting disconnected nodes
