Asserts eBPF Probe provides a Prometheus metrics endpoint for service to service network connections. Asserts uses this metric data as a feed to build the Entity Graph.

There is a separate chart for Asserts eBPF Probe.
helm repo add asserts https://asserts.github.io/helm-charts
helm repo update asserts
helm upgrade ebpf-probe asserts/ebpf-probe \
--namespace asserts \
The chart creates a daemon set and a Pod Monitor for the Prometheus Operator. If the Pod Monitor requires additional labels to be picked up by the local Prometheus Operator configuration it can be set with:
