Docker Container Monitoring

Docker monitoring can be challenging because of the large number and dynamic nature of containers, running many different workloads or microservices.

Containers are lightweight constructs, so you also want your Docker monitoring tools to be lightweight and adapted to production environments with many containers per host, and many different metrics per container.

Do you always know:

  • How many and how long Docker containers are running?
  • What is the resources usage of your containers and servers?
  • What is going on at the orchestration layer?
  • How are microservices inside your containers behaving?
  • What is the performance impact on your application and users?
Certified Docker monitoring

CoScale not only monitors your Docker containers and their resource usage, but it also automatically recognizes the services inside your containers, and extracts in-container application metrics with a single low-overhead and Docker-certified agent per host. Docker monitoring done right!

See your containers and microservices like never before

Why use CoScale for Docker monitoring?

Lightweight container monitoring

Light and non-intrusive

CoScale runs one lightweight agent per host, built for production usage, with minimal overhead and no external dependencies. Deployed as a container, this makes it ideally suited for monitoring Docker containers and the associated microservices.

Docker metrics and events

Container integrations

Gather key metrics and events from your containers and orchestrators, such as containers per service, container resource usage, container lifecycle and orchestrator events. In addition, gain visibility into the performance of the applications inside your containers.

Anomaly detection

Anomaly detection

Specific visualizations and anomaly detection techniques for large-scale and dynamic environments help you quickly understand abnormal container behavior, problematic microservices, and resource bottlenecks.

Metrics and events from your entire container environment

Full stack container monitoring

Full stack monitoring

Deploy our lightweight server agent with close to 100 integrations to monitor all application components inside or outside containers. In addition, see the impact on end users with our real user monitoring.

Events integration

Events integration

Add your important events to your timeline to see performance in context. Use our event integrations to understand the impact of config changes, new deployments, scheduler events, cron jobs, and even marketing campaigns.

Custom metrics

Custom metrics

Next to technical performance metrics, also see the impact on the metrics that matter most to you. Use our rich support for custom metrics to include business and application specific metrics.
