Below are the requirements for deploying Pixie to your cluster.
Pixie currently provides observability for your Kubernetes cluster.
|Docker Swarm||Not Supported||Not on roadmap|
|Nomad||Not Supported||Not on roadmap|
|Mesos-Marathon||Not Supported||Not on roadmap|
Memory requirements for your cluster nodes are as follows:
|Pixie Edge Module||500MiB||2GiB preferred|
|Pixie Command Module||2GiB||8GiB+ preferred|
We recommend configuring CPU limits for both the Pixie Edge Module and Pixie Command Module to be within 5% of the node's allocated CPU capacity.
The Pixie Edge Module and the Pixie Command Module run on Linux nodes only.
|Windows||Not Supported||Not in roadmap|
The following is a list of Linux distributions that have been tested.
Pixie may also work on other distributions.
Note: It is recommended that Linux headers be installed on the cluster nodes.
