Issue/Introduction

Is is possible to install the tcpdump utility on a BlazeMeter engine pod image in order to be able to capture network traffic to be used to troubleshoot network issues in a BlazeMeter Private Cloud instance?

Environment

Release : SAAS

Component : BLAZEMETER GENERAL PLATFORM ISSUE

Resolution

It is possible to add the tcpdump utility to the bzm-app image in order to capture the network traffic.

BlazeMeter support does not have the procedure available for doing this, but a good Linux admin should know how to "patch" the bzm-app image to get tcpdump installed.
