Sematext Agent for Docker

Sematext Agent runs as a tiny container and collects all host and containers metrics. You run it with a single “docker run…” command or via docker-compose. It runs on Kubernetes as well as a DaemonSet, but can also run as a Docker Swarm service, with Rancher, or with Marathon for Mesos or DC/OS.

  • Sematext Agent is light and native. It runs as a minimal container on each of your Docker hosts
  • It collects host and container metrics, and events
  • Get Docker monitoring dashboards out of the box with host and container CPU, memory, swap, memory failed counters, network errors, disk IO, network traffic, and much more
  • Docker monitoring & alerting with pre-built Docker monitoring dashboards and container alert rules
ELK as a Service

Logagent for Docker

Logagent runs as a tiny container and ships containers logs to Sematext Logs. You run it with a single “docker run…” command or via docker-compose. Same as Sematext Agent, it runs on Kubernetes as a DaemonSet, but can also run as a Docker Swarm service.

  • Logagent is light and native. It runs as a minimal container on each of your Docker hosts
  • Alerting with pre-built error and timeout alerts with the ability to create custom container alert rules

Ship Docker Logs

  • Configurable, built-in log parsing ensures logs are nicely structured, easily searchable for troubleshooting, but also ready for analytical queries, charts, and dashboards for your CTO and business
  • Multi-line support for container logs to capture e.g. error stack traces as a single event
  • Filter metrics and logs by host, container, image, or labels

More about Log Management

Kubernetes Monitoring

  • Install as Helm chart or create a sematext-agent.yml file with the DaemonSet definition and your Sematext Cloud app tokens. Start monitoring Kubernetes metrics, logs, and events with a simple kubectl create -f sematext-agent.yml
  • Get logs parsed, structured, and tagged with namespace, pod, container, image name, and UID
  • Filter metrics and logs by host, container, image, pod, or labels

More about Kubernetes monitoring

Rancher Monitoring

  • Create a sematext/docker-compose.yml file with your Sematext Cloud app token and start with rancher-compose up -d. Et voilà!
  • Visual configuration via Rancher Catalog template, just search for “Sematext” to find us

Docker Swarm Monitoring

  • Automatic agent deployment to all Swarm nodes with a single command
  • Enrichment of logs with Swarm metadata like service name, service id, service instance, etc.

In-Container Service Auto-Discovery

  • Applications running in containers are discovered automatically
  • Monitoring agents start automatically upon application discovery
  • Configurable agent templates for custom settings
