Frequently Asked Questions

How secure is the sysdig approach?

It’s very secure. In fact, we have F500 banks, government organizations and security-focused technology companies who all count on sysdig. Here are just a few of the steps we’ve taken to secure our offerings:
  • Our kernel instrumentation is open source, so you can see exactly what we’re doing to get the data. Sysdig’s open source tool is also pre-packaged with many OS distributions as well
  • We use HTTPS transport for your data
  • Our cloud backend is secured through multiple mechanisms
  • If you don’t want to use our cloud, you can deploy a software version of our backend
  • We have role-based and service-based access control mechansms for your data, dashboards, and alerts

How do you integrate with AWS?

In a few different ways:
  • Run our agent on your EC2 Hosts
  • Integrate us with CloudWatch using read-only credentials
  • Our agents can automatically interpret data that AWS doesn’t provide, like RDS query time
  • We can poll AWS ECS for container metadata

How do you integrate with Kubernetes, Mesos, and Docker?

Like a boss. In fact, we’re quite confident that you’ve never seen a monitoring tool do what we can do with your orchestrator. We automatically find and poll your orchestrator for metadata about your deployment. This allows us to then aggregate your monitoring data on-the-fly to give you smarter, microservice-based views of your resources, instead of just physical host/ip/container views.

What kind of resource utilization does the agent require?

Typically our agent uses <5% CPU, 512MB RAM, and 4-5K/s of bandwidth. The CPU utilization is tunable to lower amounts. If we max out on utilization we will not impact your other applications - we will instead start sub-sampling data.

What’s the relationship between open source sysdig and Sysdig Cloud?

Sysdig open source is the core technology that we also use in our commercial offering. The open source tool is designed for detailed troubleshooting of a single host, and offers a terminal-based interface. Support is provided by the community only.

Sysdig Cloud is our commercial offering, designed to aggregate information from thousands of hosts, tens of thousands of containers, across multiple clouds. It offers a web-based interface for dashboarding, exploration, and alerting.

Is this a cloud service or on-premise software?

Yes! We offer both. Check out our deployment offerings.

What cloud services can I deploy Sysdig in?

Pretty much any cloud that supports linux and allows us to deploy kernel modules. AWS, Google Cloud, GKE, Microsoft Azure, Rackspace, Digital Ocean, Softlayer are just some examples of where we’re running.

Can Sysdig work in non-container environments?

Shhh. That’s a little secret we have here…. Sysdig works great in non-containerized environments too. Just run our agent as a process instead of a container and you’re off to the races.

How does Sysdig monitor microservices?

We were also built to understand microservices from day one. We leverage the data in your orchestration system through a functionality we call ServiceVision to allow us to have an always-up-to-date view of where your containers are deployed and what they are supposed to be doing.

What’s special about Sysdig and monitoring containers?

We basically invented the container monitoring space (and we’re real humble about it.) It all starts with our core technology, ContainerVision, which allows you to see inside your containers from the outside. Contrast that to traditional monitoring tools that require an agent inside each container, or a “sidecar” agent that adds significant complexity and bloat.

Do you have an on-premises deployment option?

Yes! Sysdig Cloud is available for on-premise deployment. Annual subscription and a minimum commitment is required. Please contact our sales team for more information.

What is your definition of a host?

A host is any instance of a Linux operating system, where you install Sysdig Cloud. Hosts can be physical or virtualized. Containers are not hosts - Sysdig Cloud does not require any agent to be installed in your containers.

Do you have monthly plans available?

Yes, we offer month-to-month subscriptions at a 25% premium to the annual subscription pricing ($25 / host / month).

How many users are included in the subscription?

You may have an unlimited number of users on your account. Share Sysdig Cloud with your whole team!

How does the free trial work?

You get full access to the product for 14 days. Free trials let you monitor up to 15 hosts concurrently. If you need more hosts for your trial, just contact our sales team. At the end of the trial you will be prompted to enter in your billing information to upgrade to a standard subscription.

How do you integrate with my orchestration tools?

If you're using Kubernetes, Mesos, or Swarm, we'll automatically integrate when you place our agent on the master. For other systems such as Puppet and Chef, you simply add Sysdig tagging information to your deployment scripts.

How do you charge for AWS integration?

CloudWatch API integration is included for everyone. Each host license you purchase also includes coverage for up to three AWS resources. For example, a “resource” could be an EC2 instance or an RDS node. If you would like to monitor additional AWS resources, please contact our sales team for a custom quote.

How do you charge for container monitoring?

Each Basic Cloud license you purchase includes coverage for up to 15 containers per host. Each Pro Cloud license includes up to 30 containers per host. Pro Cloud and Pro Software container density can be customized -  please contact our sales team for a custom quote.

How do you charge for custom metrics collection?

Each Basic Cloud license you purchase also allows you to export up to 200 unique metrics per second per host. Each Pro Cloud license includes up to 500 custom metrics. Pro Cloud and Pro Software licenses are customizable to increase custom metrics support.

Do you offer volume discounts?

Yes! Please contact our sales team for a custom quote.

Do you offer special pricing for dynamic environments?

Yes! Sysdig Cloud offers hourly pricing that ensures you have full coverage as nodes spin up and down in elastic environments. Please contact our sales team for more information.
