Hey!, Im pretty new to New Relic as a whole and ive recently been pulled in by this sidecar concept.
We are upgrading Openshift Versions and In the new cluster I want to see if I can deploy APM as a sidecar container on Openshift pods. Im in mostly a Java shop so the Java Agent is what ive been looking at
The goal is to not have New Relic on the app container for update purposes. But to have the APM on its own container in the same pod as the app container so that we can decouple those 2 things.
We used to have new relic jar file on a file system that gets called by the deployment config.
If anyone has any info or experience or docs on running new relic on a side car container it would be really helpful.
