Agent Is it possible to install agents in cassandra with docker?

    Good morning.

    Anyone know if it is possible to install big data agents (Cassandra), knowing that Cassnadra is installed in Docker.

    A client currently has a redhat server, which has a docker installed and is based on Debian, so cassandra is inside the docker.

    Hi Victor,

    There are a number of items to consider here. First is the Linux kernel used in the container, the second is whether the version of Cassandra is supported by the agent, and third is whether there is a valid network path between the agent inside the container, and the Gateway it is communicating with.

    As long as all three of these are satisfied, there is no reason not to run the agent inside a container.
    It is probably worth running the which_ragent_package script referenced at https://docs.imperva.com/bundle/v13.5-agent-release-notes/page/59040.htm to give you a better idea of whether it is likely to work as expected.

    As mentioned it may run but at this time this deployment is not officially supported.
    It is on our road map to provide full support for dockers deployments but I dont have a firm ETA 

    Hopefully we will have an announcement soon

    @Phil Klassen Hi Phil,

    Is there any update about the issue? We need to deploy Imperva agent for capturing PostgreSQL traffic running in Docker container.

    Thanks,
