Is eBPF Foundation Molding the Future of Infrastructure Software Space?
Some of the biggest IT companies, including Meta, Netflix, Google, Isovalent, Microsoft, and others, together formed the eBPF foundation on August 12, 2021. The brief of this was discussed in the eBPF Summit, a virtual event conducted during August 18- 19, 2021.

eBPF to Enhance Kubernetes Monitoring
The introduction of Docker and Kubernetes has brought a dramatic revolution in the IT industry. Unlike the traditional methods of developing and deploying software, Kubernetes or K8s uses scaling and automated deployment. Thanks to the Linux functionalities that make Kubernetes run seamlessly with robust security.

How to Add eBPF Observability to Your Project
When it comes to integrating security, networking, and observability features, working within the Linux kernel is perfect. It is not, however, without its difficulties. Historically, developers have encountered complex architectures and difficult-to- debug abstraction layers, altered kernel source code or added modules. Both of these issues are addressed by the extended BPF (eBPF).

Introduction to eBPF - Revolutionizing Linux Kernel Technology
eBPF, which stands for Extended Berkeley Packet Filter, is a technology that allows Linux programs to run code in the kernel. eBPF was previously also used to construct debugging, networking, profiling, monitoring, firewalls, and other types of programs.

An easy-to-Understand Overview of Popular extended BPF Tools – BCC, Falco, and More
An in-kernel virtual machine BPF, or Berkeley Packet Filter, is known for running programs passed from user space. It was first implemented on BSD and then Linux, followed by the classic BPF (cBPF). In recent times, the BPF infrastructure in Linux has undergone a major transition and has given birth to the extended BPF – or eBPF as it is popularly called. Some of the popular use-cases where extended BPF has brought about flexibility and high performance include tracing and monitoring events on the system, enforcing access control over cgroups, and processing packets at a very low level (XDP).
