Instana is available as a SaaS solution hosted in multiple public clouds like AWS and Google Cloud, or self-hosted. This means that there are multiple addresses for data ingress to which agent technology like the host agent or the serverless agents report.
The agent key is being used to create a relation between the monitoring agent and the environment it belongs to. Several installation methods of the host-agent like the one-liner for Linux machines use the agent key as an authentication method which grants the executing machine access to the downloadable artifact. The agent key also grants permission to ingest data for a specific environment.
The agent key can be found by clicking on Deploy Agent within the Instana user interfaces' landing page.
The ingress endpoint for monitoring technologies depends on the type of data being ingested, and where the installation is located:
