With NextGen gateway we are also consolidating our collector technologies - both agent and agent less, via a lightweight bootstrap tool which simplifies collector onboarding into various target environments - bare-metal, virtualized, containerized and Kubernetes environments. This collector bootstrap, a small program, can be downloaded and executed on various OS platforms. Once executed, it will then deploy, register the specific collector type (agent, or a gateway) into the cloud platform and has the ability to start discovering and monitoring your hybrid environments automatically.

The NextGen gateway collector is currently deployed in the following three ways:
