How the Hive Came to Bee: A Technical Deep Dive of eBPF

eBPF: From the Creators' Viewpoint

Watch this series of videos where we cover eBPF from the creator’s viewpoint! Hear more about the evolution, adoption, inner workings and the game changing nature of eBPF. Learn how it all fits together and how eBPF is used in real-world scenarios, all from the co-founders and creators of eBPF at Isovalent.

In this session: A Technical Deep Dive of eBPF
In this second video of our eBPF Creators series, learn how eBPF works at the kernel level. You will learn how eBPF functions under the hood, discuss the internal workings, and see “how things are actually done” with eBPF.

Using eBPF in the real world - let’s take Cilium as an eBPF use case.


Getting started with eBPF

eBPF is the new standard to program Linux kernel capabilities in a safe and efficient manner without requiring to change kernel source code or loading kernel modules. It has enabled a new generation of high performance tooling to be developed covering networking, security, and observability use cases. The best way to learn about eBPF is to read the book “What is eBPF” by Liz Rice. And the best way to have your first experience with eBPF programming is to walk through this lab, which takes the opensnoop example out of the book and teaches you to handle an eBPF tool, watch it loading its components and even add your own tracing into the source eBPF code.
