Docker Monitor

Docker is an open platform for developers and system administrators to build, ship, and run distributed applications inside software containers. Docker Monitor monitors these containers and collects key performance metrics from the Docker Remote API over https. Docker Monitor then posts these metrics to CA APM and correlates them to the overall application performance.

With
Docker Monitor
, you gain deep, actionable insight into your Docker environments, and the services running on containers, so that your staff can spot and address issues faster. Use the Docker Monitor to optimize resource utilization, performance, and capacity planning.
Key Highlights
  • Autodiscovery of Containers
    • Automatically discover all the containers and container flow
    • Use automatic Docker attributes and Docker perspectives
  • Monitor Container Health
    • Monitor health and performance of containers
    • Obtain predictive insights and alerting on container performance
  • Monitor Host Performance
    • Obtain performance metrics at the host level (SystemEdge)
    • Ensure ongoing monitoring and optimization of all your host servers
  • Triage and Diagnose
    • Automatically detect and isolate problems to right application tiers
    • Perform faster root cause analysis with APM Assisted Triage
You can use the Docker Monitor to capture performance metrics from standalone Docker containers and from swarm deployments or deployments on Apache Mesos. The Docker Monitor comes with several out-of-the-box dashboards that facilitate the monitoring task.
Installing and deploying the Docker Monitor takes only minutes. Once deployed, you are ready to:
  • Monitor the health and status of each container
  • Visualize metric data from different perspectives
The Container Flow Map component is responsible for graphically representing network relationships between Docker containers in any of the Docker Team Center perspectives. Use it to automatically detect container interdependencies.
