Business iQ (Analytics)

Standalone analytics agent(s) in container


Standalone analytics agent(s) in container

Hi. Is anyone running their analytics agents in containers? I can see a lot of advantages in this.

  1. LCM.
  2. Easy deployment.
  3. Availability.
  4. Easy scale up/down
  5. Built in load balancing (depending on container infrastructire)
  6. Central point for all transacation analytics, makes configuring APM agents easy.

Any disadvantages you can think of?

We do not have anything for stand alone analytics agent but we do have a deployment for machine agent. please refer the below knowledge base article:

Hi. Yes I know I'm using the machine agent docker file in another project. I was more interested in the common opinion/best practise about running a bunch of Analytics agents in containers. Pros & cons etc.
