When intercepting a service, the Telepresence Traffic Manager ensures that a Traffic Agent has been injected into the intercepted workload. The injection is triggered by a Kubernetes Mutating Webhook and will only happen once. The Traffic Agent is responsible for redirecting intercepted traffic to the developer's workstation.

Global intercept

This intercept will intercept alltcp and/or udp traffic to the intercepted service and send all of that traffic down to the developer's workstation. This means that a global intercept will affect all users of the intercepted service.

Supported workloads

Kubernetes has various workloads. Currently, Telepresence supports intercepting (installing a traffic-agent on) Deployments, ReplicaSets, and StatefulSets.
