#1. Introduction

DeepFlow supports monitoring cloud servers and automatically injects cloud resource information into all observability data (AutoTagging) by calling cloud vendor APIs.

#2. Deployment Topology

#3. Contact Yunshan Networks to Create a Public Cloud Domain

DeepFlow currently supports resource information synchronization for the following public clouds (marked as TBD are in the process of code organization):

Cloud Provider (English) Cloud Provider (Chinese) Type Identifier Used in DeepFlow
AWS AWS aws
Aliyun 阿里云 aliyun
Baidu Cloud 百度云 baidu_bce
Huawei Cloud 华为云 huawei
Microsoft Azure 微软云 TBD
QingCloud 青云 qingcloud
Tencent Cloud 腾讯云 tencent

#3.1 Obtain the Collector Installation Package and Agent Group ID

When deploying DeepFlow Agent on public cloud servers, you need to obtain the installation package for traditional servers and the Agent Group ID from Yunshan Networks.
