# Using the Agent Console

Sysdig provides an Agent Console to interact with the Sysdig agent. This is a troubleshooting tool to help you download configuration files and investigate agent configuration problems quickly.

## Enable Agent Console

This is currently turned off by default. To turn it on, edit the following in the dragent.yaml file:

command_line:
enabled: true


## Access Agent Console

### Note

Currently, Agent Console is disabled by default. Only Sysdig support can access the Agent Console at this point.

1. From Explore click the Groupings drop-down.

2. Select Hosts & Container.

3. Click the desired host to investigate the corresponding agent configuration.

4. Click Options (three dots) on the right upper corner of the Explore tab.

5. Click Agent Console.

## Agent Console Commands

### View Version

Run the following to find the version of the agent running in your environment:

$version An example output: 11.2.0 ### View Agent Configuration Run the following to view the configuration of the agent running in your environment: $ configuration show-dragent-yaml
$configuration show-configmap-yaml$ configuration show-default-yaml
$configuration show-backend-yaml  The output displays the configuration file. Sensitive data such as the credentials are obfuscated. customerid: "********" watchdog: max_memory_usage_mb: 2048 ### Troubleshoot Prometheus Metrics Collection Provides commands to help troubleshoot Prometheus targets configured in your environment. For example, the following commands display and scrape the Prometheus endpoints respectively. $ prometheus target show
\$ prometheus target scrape

## Security Considerations

• User-sensitive configuration is obfuscated and not visible through the CLI.

• All the information is read-only. You cannot currently change any configuration by using the Agent console.

• Runs completely inside the agent. It does not use bash or any other Linux terminals to prevent the risk of command injection.

• Runs only via a TLS connection with the Sysdig backend.

• To turn off the command line output, edit the following in the dragent.yaml file:

command_line:
enabled: false
