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.
