The Sidecar model is often used in Kubernetes deployments to add common tools like observability, service mesh and security into application pods. eBPF is a kernel technology that lets us dynamically change the way that the kernel behaves - and it’s revolutionizing the way we instrument applications running under Kubernetes. Tools built with eBPF have the power to observe, secure and connect all the processes on a (virtual) machine, so there’s no need to inject a sidecar container into every pod.
