Our Capsule8 OSS Sensor is designed to collect security and performance data with minimal impact to your containerized and non-containerized servers.
It enables you to understand what your production processes are doing in real-time. As with all OSS capabilities, the Capsule8 Sensor offers you a democratizing voice in the code running on your servers.
HOW IT WORKS
The Capsule8 OSS Sensor is exposed via a gRPC API. Unlike other solutions, it doesn’t require a kernel module, so you no longer have the burden of having to instrument Linux tracing in perf.
The Sensor provides this monitoring via access to Linux tracing and perf. Because we’re tapped into traditional security data (such as fopen, syscalls, network), and performance data, we were able to rapidly prototype solutions to Spectre and Meltdown.
