In my company, the Linux based servers are restricted and we don't have root privileges, therefore, I cannot start Packetbeat. The error I get is: Error creating sniffer: any: You don't have permission to capture on that device (socket: Operation not permitted)
My questions are:
(1) Is there a way to run Packetbeat without root account?
(2) What access do I need to request in order to be able to run Packetbeat? I will not get a root account, but I can submit a request to authorize my application account to get permissions to a specific location / file.
Thanks in advance,
