Support for Kafka in .NET agents


Support for Kafka in .NET agents

Dear AppD Team,


I have a few services written in .NET Core running on Linux containers. I'm using the latest .NET agent for Linux.


Among these services are a Kafka producer and a Kafka consumer. We are finding that AppD does not see the Kafka traffic between these services.


Do the .NET agents currently support Kafka?

Support for Kafka in .NET agents

Hi @Tony.Chow 

Thank you for posting to the community.
Unfortunately, Kafka is not supported by .NET agent for back-end detection by default.
Supported back-end list is written in the document below.

However, you can create a Custom Exit Point to detect back-end for Kafka.
Please see the document below for adding a custom exit point.

Best Regards,
