Sematext Docker Agent is a modern, open-source, Docker-native monitoring and log collection agent. It runs as a tiny container on every Docker host and provides automatic collection and processing of Docker Metrics, Events and Logs for all cluster nodes and all auto-discovered containers. It works with Docker Swarm, Docker Enterprise Edition (EE), Docker Cloud, as well as Amazon ECS, Google Container Engine (GKE), Kubernetes, Mesos, Rancher, and CoreOS.
Easy SetupDeployable to any Docker-enabled platform within a few minutes: Docker Cloud, AWS ECS, etc.
Auto-DiscoveryAutomatically discover any newly launched containers without manual intervention
Metrics + Logs + EventsCollect all Docker operational bits – metrics, logs, and events, both from Containers and their Hosts.
Orchestration SupportUse with Swarm, Docker Cloud, Docker Enterprise Edition, Amazon ECS, Kubernetes, Rancher, CoreOS, Mesos, etc.
Log Structure ParsingAuto-detect and parse log formats for a number of applications out of the box; extensible with your own log parsing rules.
Log EnrichmentAuto-tag logs with image name, container name, Swarm and Kubernetes metadata; GeoIP enrichment
Log RoutingRoute logs from different sets of containers to the right Logsene Application based on Container Labels.
Masking Sensitive DataHide sensitive data from the prying eyes by masking it before it is shipped, while still being able to look it up.
Secure & Reliable Data TransferAll data is shipped via HTTPS; In case of network failure data is persisted and re-transmitted to avoid data loss.
Overage ProtectionLogs don’t get rejected when you go over your daily log volume limit, yet you get to set absolute limits to avoid surprise bills.
Team CollaborationShare Logs and Metrics with your team using role based access control. Invite more team members by e-mail, there is no limit in the number of users!
ChatOps IntegrationNotify your DevOps team about critical issues, or react automatically with integrations for Slack, PagerDuty, HipChat or arbitrary web hooks.
Alerting on Metrics & LogsSetup anomaly detection or threshold alerts on performance metrics per host, image or container. Spot critical log messages or high log frequency automatically.
Kibana & GrafanaUse native UI or built-in Kibana or even Grafana to build reports and dashboards with data from your logs.
Amazon S3 ArchiveGot compliance requirements? Automatically archive all your logs to Amazon S3 for cheap long-term data retention.

Reference Architecture: Monitoring and Logging for Docker Enterprise Edition
Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) simplifies container orchestration and increases the flexibility and scalability of application deployments. However, the high level of automation create new challenges for monitoring and log management. Why? Because each container typically runs a single process, has its own environment, utilizes virtual networks, or has various methods of managing storage.
