Containers isolate software from its surroundings creating a lightweight, stand-alone, executable package of software that includes everything needed to run it; providing a streamlined and transparent solution, for both Developers and Operations. ScienceLogic’s AIOps platform provides a unified, yet granular view across your entire IT environment, whether it includes microservices, containers, multiple clouds, or data centers. Using the raw stats pulled from the Docker API, we’re able to take advantage of metrics at the image-level giving an overall aggregate view of a broad function that is delivered by many individual container instances. This unique ability to see everything allows operations to deliver better infrastructure health, incident automation while considerably reducing costs.
When Docker is utilized in your IT ecosystem, ScienceLogic provides additional components to include Swarm, Stack and Service, as well as the relationships to the Hosts that make up Swarm and their microservices and containers.
- At the Swarm Level using ScienceLogic configuration information about nodes in Swarm are easily accessible
- At the Stack Level with ScienceLogic, 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 with ScienceLogic, you’ll receive totaled metrics for CPU, memory and network performance, identifying how much resources a particular service is consuming.
Those That Do Move See Astounding Benefits
MetLife claims a 66% infrastructure cost reduction by replacing VMs with containers. Equally enticing for organizations is the inherent portability that comes with containerization. Once you have done the hard graft of defining the dependencies for your app, switching it to run in Azure or AWS or IBM Cloud or a plethora of other on-prem or off-prem options becomes a relative breeze!
Get deep visibility into Docker, AWS, Azure, and more so you can see how critical workloads are performing and rest assured the cloud is doing its job. Learn more about ScienceLogic’s cloud monitoring and management.
