What is Docker monitoring?

Docker monitoring monitors the performance of microservice containers in Docker environments. Docker containers isolate software from its surroundings – creating a lightweight, stand-alone, executable packaged piece of software that includes everything needed to run it. Docker provides a streamlined and transparent solution for all your container needs.

How can Docker monitoring help an organization like yours?

Docker monitoring enables businesses to accelerate and optimize the performance of microservices running in dynamic Docker environments.

Combining hassle-free configuration, automatic container discovery, and massively scalable metric collection and analytics, Docker monitoring helps organizations exploit the power and performance of Docker without incurring additional risk. Docker monitoring also enables your business to easily streamline your process and package software into standardized units for development, shipment, and deployment—helping you conduct digital business at scale while providing great user experiences.


The ScienceLogic SL1 Platform for Docker Monitoring

When Docker Swarm is utilized in your IT ecosystem, SL1 provides additional components to include Swarm, Stack, and Service, as well as the relationships to the Hosts that make up Swarm and their containers.

  • At the Swarm Level: You’ll be able to easily access configuration information about Nodes in Swarm.
  • At the Stack Level: Collect aggregated metrics on the number of containers in an application and monitor the average uptime of the containers that make up the application.
  • At the Service Level: You’ll receive totaled metrics for CPU, memory, and network performance, identifying how much resources a particular service is consuming.
