Quick Start


You will need to get your API key from your Profile Page. Copy the API key and paste when prompted.


Make sure you have Helm 3 installed. Then,

helm install speedscale-operator speedscale/speedscale-operator \
-n speedscale \
--create-namespace \
--set clusterName=<YOUR-CLUSTER-NAME>

Navigate to the Helm repository for all configuration options available for the Helm chart.

Verify Install

For Kubernetes users, make sure the operator pods are running properly:

kubectl -n speedscale get pods

Note: The Operator will start at least 2 pods (the operator itself and the Speedscale Forwarder) after it starts. On your cluster the ids of the pods will be different.

NAME                                    READY   STATUS    RESTARTS   AGE
speedscale-forwarder-xxxxxxxxxx-xxxxx 1/1 Running 0 5s
speedscale-operator-xxxxxxxxxx-xxxxx 1/1 Running 0 15s

If you're ready to capture traffic skip ahead to Sidecar.
