Crater agents are servers with our standard configuration running a Docker container hosting the agent. A timer checks for updates every 5 minutes, and if a newer Docker image is present the container will automatically be updated and restarted. This service is managed with Ansible.
The agent is managed by the
container-crater-agent.service systemd unit. That
means it's possible to start, stop and restart it with the usual systemctl
systemctl stop container-crater-agent.service systemctl start container-crater-agent.service systemctl restart container-crater-agent.service
Logs of the agents are forwarded and collected by journald. To see them you can use journalctl:
journalctl -u container-crater-agent.service
The container is updated automatically every 5 minutes (provided a newer image is present). If you need to update them sooner you can manuallly start the updater service by running this command:
systemctl start docker-images-update.service
