Container Monitoring

Sematext Docker Agent

Sematext Docker Agent runs as an itsy bitsy container itself and collects Docker host and container metrics, logs, and events. You run it with a single “docker run…” command or via docker-compose. It also runs as Kubernetes DaemonSet, Docker Swarm service, with Rancher, or with Marathon for Mesos or DC/OS. You can also deploy it to Docker Cloud with a single click.

  • Sematext Docker Agent is light and native. It runs as a minime container on each of your Docker hosts
  • It collects host and container metrics, logs and events
  • Get out of the box host and container CPU, Memory, Swap, Memory failed counters, Network errors, Disk IO, Network traffic, and more
  • Enable/disable agent via labels, route data using labels, whitelist/blacklist containers, enrich logs with GeoIP info, mask or strip sensitive data and a whole lot more — see Docker Monitoring & Logging
