    Hi Sathya,
    Yes, RHEL 8 is covered. Please note that RHEL db servers will likely need an updated KTAP.  
    It looks like the very latest one is Guardium_KTAP_11.4_rhel-8-linux-x86-64_r111573_2022-05-26.
    You should download the zip file and look in the ktap_combos.txt file for your specific OS version/kernel. An example of one is 5.4.17-2102.206.1.el8uek.x86_64.

    Installing KTAPs requires a little extra work and if your RHEL systems are getting updated pretty frequently, you will have to stay on top of them.
    Be sure to install the STAP first - with KTAP_ENABLED=0, KTAP_ALLOW_MODULE_COMBOS=Y, KTAP_LIVE_UPDATE=Y
    Once installed, then upload the KTAP and install it next with KTAP_ENABLED=1.

    There is a lot more but this is the short version. 

    If you are on the very latest version, you might have to request a KTAP. The process is at:
