Sematext Docker Agent
- 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 Docker monitoring dashboards out of the box with host and container CPU, memory, swap, memory failed counters, network errors, disk IO, network traffic, and more
- Enable/disable monitoring 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
- Docker monitoring & alerting with pre-build and customer dashboards and container alert rules
Container Log Shipping
- 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
- 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
- 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
Deployable to any Docker-enabled platform within a few minutes: AWS ECS, AWS EKS, etc.
Automatically discover any newly launched containers without manual intervention.
Metrics + Logs + Events
Collect all Docker operational bits – metrics, logs, and events, both from Containers and their Hosts.
Use with Kubernetes, Swarm, Docker Enterprise Edition, AWS ECS and AWS EKS, Rancher, CoreOS, Mesos, etc.
Log Structure Parsing
Auto-detect and parse log formats for a number of applications out of the box; extensible with your own log parsing rules.
Auto-tag logs with image name, container name, Swarm and Kubernetes metadata; GeoIP enrichment.
Route logs from different sets of containers to the right Logs App based on container Labels.
Masking Sensitive Data
Hide sensitive data from the prying eyes by masking it before it is shipped, while still being able to look it up.
Secure & Reliable Data Transfer
All data is shipped via HTTPS; In case of network failure data is persisted and re-transmitted to avoid data loss.
Logs 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 Collaboration & RBAC
Share 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!
Notify your DevOps team about critical issues, or react automatically with integrations for Slack, PagerDuty, HipChat or arbitrary web hooks.
Alerting on Metrics, Logs & Events
Setup anomaly detection or threshold alerts on performance metrics per host, image or container. Spot critical log messages or high log frequency automatically.
Kibana & Grafana
Use native UI or built-in Kibana or even Grafana to build reports and dashboards with data from your logs.
Amazon S3 Archive
Got compliance requirements? Automatically archive all your logs to Amazon S3 for cheap long-term data retention.
Cloud & On Premises
Can’t ship your metrics or logs to the Cloud? No problem – On Premises solution is available, too.
