Issue/Introduction

Does UMA work in AWS Fargate?

See https://aws.amazon.com/fargate/ for more details on Fargate.

Resolution

UMA will not work with Fargate, Fargate is like serverless for the container world.

AWS abstracts the hosts where the containers are deployed, so essentially, we don't get any access into the host that UMA needs for container performance and also for auto discovery and instrumentation of containers. The documentation states that AWS still gives you host isolation, so there is a chance that we get access to the host but this will require more research.

For now, the only options are

  1. Get metrics/topology from cloud watch
  2. For App performance, embed the java agent in the app containers.
