  • Custom kernel builds are not supported.
  • For compatibility with a custom Kubernetes network plugin like Cilium or Calico, see the Troubleshooting Cloud Security Management Threats.
  • Data collection is done using eBPF, so Datadog minimally requires platforms that have underlying Linux kernel versions of 4.15.0+ or have eBPF features backported.
