--redact-presets strings Comma-separated list of redaction presets to use in collection data obfuscation.
Available presets:
- "networking": Obfuscate any data that matches IPv4 or IPv6 addresses. Any matches are replaced with SHA-256 hashes that are converted back to a valid IPv4 or IPv6.
--redact-regexes strings Obfuscate the data collected based on the list of provided regexes. Any matches are replaced with SHA-256 hashes of the matched string.
--rps-limit int Requests per second limit to the Kubernetes API server, defaults to 50. A higher limit can make collect run faster. (default 50)
