bpfman: An eBPF Manager

License License License: GPL

Formerly know as bpfd

Welcome to bpfman

bpfman operates as an eBPF manager, focusing on simplifying the deployment and administration of eBPF programs. Its notable features encompass:

  • System Overview: Provides insights into how eBPF is utilized in your system.
  • eBPF Program Loader: Includes a built-in program loader that supports program cooperation for XDP and TC programs, as well as deployment of eBPF programs from OCI images.
  • eBPF Filesystem Management: Manages the eBPF filesystem, facilitating the deployment of eBPF applications without requiring additional privileges.

Our program loader and eBPF filesystem manager ensure the secure deployment of eBPF applications. Furthermore, bpfman includes a Kubernetes operator, extending these capabilities to Kubernetes. This allows users to confidently deploy eBPF through custom resource definitions across nodes in a cluster.
