Requirements
Before installing groundcover make sure your stack is fully supported. Not sure? ping us.

Kubernetes

groundcover supports any K8s version v1.12 or later (anything since 2018). groundcover has been tested and validated on the most common K8s distributions. See full list in the Supported Technologies section.

Operating System

groundcover supports any Linux distribution with a kernel version of v4.14 or later (anything since 2017).

Memory

groundcover requests a total of ~1GB per agent and ~4GB for the data platform (traces, logs, metrics) for a basic installation. Deployment in high traffic clusters might request up to ~2.7GB per agent and ~7GB for the data platform. Actual usage depends on cluster activity.
Most of the memory requests are aimed at supporting moments of significant traffic peaks. We're constantly working on improving that!
If you're trying groundcover on a smaller cluster - you can tune the resources via the standard values.yaml interface in our helm chart, Contact us on slack if you want help in fine tuning groundcover to your needs

CPU

groundcover requires a total of ~500mCPU per agent and ~1CPU for the data platform (traces, logs, metrics) for a basic installation. Deployment in high traffic clusters might request up to ~1CPU per agent and ~2.9CPU for the data platform. Actual usage depends on cluster activity.
By default, our CPU requirements are tailored for K8s clusters with 20+ nodes and significant traffic volumes. Your cluster doesn't fit that description? you can tune our CPU requests easily via the standard values.yaml interface in our helm chart deployment.
