Embedded Agents

This topic provides resources for configuring services that use software agents embedded in application containers.


Some service integrations depend on the ability to inject code into application containers. Examples include:

  • Application Performance Monitoring (APM) agents for monitoring services
  • Container-embedded API gateways
  • Client-side routers

We refer to these injected components as “container-embedded agents.”

Buildpacks provide a mechanism to inject components into the application container image, and the .profile.d directory provides a way to start agents before or alongside the customer application.
