Supported OS Linux

Integrationv0.0.1

Overview

This check monitors a Cyral MySQL sidecar through the Datadog Agent.

Setup

The Cyral check is not included in the Datadog Agent package, so you need to install it.

Installation

For Agent v7.21+ / v6.21+, follow the instructions below to install the Cyral check on your host. See Use Community Integrations to install with the Docker Agent or earlier versions of the Agent.

  1. Run the following command to install the Agent integration:

    datadog-agent integration install -t datadog-cyral==<INTEGRATION_VERSION>
    
  2. Configure your integration similar to core integrations.

Configuration

  1. Edit the cyral.d/conf.yaml file, in the conf.d/ folder at the root of your Agent’s configuration directory to start collecting your cyral performance data. See the sample cyral.d/conf.yaml for all available configuration options.

    init_config:
    
    instances:
     # url of the metrics endpoint of prometheus
     - prometheus_url: http://localhost:9018/metrics
    
  2. Restart the Agent.

Validation

Run the Agent’s status subcommand and look for cyral under the Checks section.
