Where Should I Run the Akita Client?

Testing Akita Locally

If you can deploy your service(s) locally, then running the Akita Client locally is a great way to test out Akita. The client will start capturing traffic on the local network and sending metadata to the Akita Cloud, which will analyze it and build a model of your APIs.

Follow instructions for Single Host or VM to start capturing traffic on your local machine with the Akita Client.

Deploying Akita to Staging or Production

If you deploy your services by hand on bare metal or in a VM, follow the instructions in Single Host or VM to deploy Akita on the same machines as your services.

If you use a VM orchestration framework, see the instructions in Single Host or VM. You can use your orchestration framework to run these commands and deploy the Akita Client across your VMs.

If you use Kubernetes for container orchestration, follow the instructions in Kubernetes.

If you use Docker, AWS Elastic Container Service, or another container orchestration framework, you can find options for deploying Akita in Docker/ECS.
