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'.

  • Monitor Log Files

    Learn how to search a string by using the chisel script called logwatcher.

Platform Metrics (IBM)

For Sysdig instances deployed on IBM Cloud 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.

To enable this feature in the IKS UI, you select Configure platform metrics in the Observability menu, as described here.
