Installing XDS client tools

xds-agent is a client tool that must run on your machine (user / developer host) to be able to use XDS.

Installation of other XDS client tools, such as xds-exec or xds-gdb is optional and depends of what you want to do :

  • xds-exec : command line tool to interact with XDS (also used by IDE integration).
  • xds-gdb : requested for debugging application.
