STAP not able to connect to Guardium Collector.

  • 1.  STAP not able to connect to Guardium Collector.

    We have installed a Guardium collector on IBM cloud virtual machine.
    - We have installed an STAP agent on a Rhel 8 machine.
    - We are trying to manually install KTAP agent because, it is not being loaded by default in the kernel.
    - We will then try to connect the stap agent to the guardium machine after updating the TAP and SQLGUARD IP's

    While doing this we are facing a lot of errors, So we are forced to think whether this is the right way to do this or not?
    Please Suggest the Procedure to doing these things in the right manner.

    You don't list any details or error messages, but I'd recommend

     - checking if there is a pre-built KTAP for your kernel version or not
     - making sure the required ports are open

    Full details on installing STAP here: https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/guardium/11.3?topic=lustug-linux-unix-installing-upgrading-uninstalling-s-tap-agents
