This check monitors Aqua.
The Aqua check will alert the user if total high-severity vulnerability is reached, or if a container is running inside a host not registered by Aqua. Aqua will also send data alerts regarding blocked events in runtime, and it is possible to trigger a webhook to scale infrastructure if more Aqua scanners are required.
The Aqua check is not included in the Datadog Agent package, so you will need to install it yourself.
If you are using Agent v6.8+ follow the instructions below to install the Aqua check on your host. See our dedicated Agent guide for installing community integrations to install checks with the Agent prior to version 6.8 or the Docker Agent:
Clone the integrations-extras repository:
git clone https://github.com/DataDog/integrations-extras.git.
