It is possible to run the DPM agent in a virtualization environment. This method can be used to monitor databases locally (“on-host”) and remotely (“off-host,” such as for Amazon RDS and Aurora). We have provided buildpacks that will set up agents for Docker and Heroku.
For Docker, you can find instructions and the necessary files here.
Generic Container Installation
Set the following environment variables in your container:
||The DPM API token for your environment. You can find this by clicking the “Add New Host” wizard in the DPM web application and select “Containerized.”|
||URI of the database you wish to monitor. A complete guide to creating this URI can be found here.|
||A list of applicable capture methods per database type can be found here.|
||The name of this container host. This is optional, but providing a human-readable name is highly recommended. Read more about that here|
