Monitoring Containerised Application Environments with eBPF

Posted · Add Comment

Earlier this week ntop and InfluxData held a joint webinar about monitoring containerised applications. We have discussed solution for monitoring both legacy (e.g. non-containerised) and containerised applications, what are the technologies we can use. As most of you know, we have developed libebpfflow that is an open source library for generating IPFIX-like flows not using packets but system events we capture with eBPF. In addition to this, we are developing a new version of the nProbe product family that is able to also exploit Netlink to complement eBPF statistics with traffic counters.

You can read more of this ongoing work on these slides we have prepared, and below you can find the video.

We’re finalising this work and we’ll soon announce it for general availability, so stay tuned.
