Agent Installation Overview
The Edge Delta agent is installed in your environment as close as possible to your data sources. It receives its configuration from the Edge Delta SaaS back end, which you control using the Edge Delta web app. The agent sends logs, patterns, metrics, and log metadata to the back end. In addition, it sends raw logs, optimized data, and trigger events to your data destinations.
After signing up for an Edge Delta account, you create or join an organization and you can invite other users to your organization. Each organization can connect to multiple Edge Delta agents. Each agent is configured using a configuration yaml file which is identified by a unique API key. That API key is also used by the agent to communicate with the Edge Delta web app to populate your dashboard.
There are two key components that are used during the Edge Delta agent installation:
- The agent configuration file. The Edge Delta web app generates a default configuration file that you can use without further configuration. The default configuration sends basic data about your environment to your Edge Delta web app, which can also used to manage and test the agent configuration. Any configuration changes that you make in the app, such as integrating data sources and destinations, are automatically pushed to the deployed agents with matching API keys.
- The secret API key. Each agent configuration is associated with a unique API key. This key is used when you install the agent to identify the configuration it should use and to authenticate its connection to your Edge Delta back end.
To install the agent, you simply deploy it in your environment and pass in the API key.
