Creating a Sematext Infra App is as easy as choosing one of our integrations and giving the App a name.

Sematext Agent collects a plethora of metrics about containers (Docker, containerd) and orchestrator platforms and ships that to Sematext Cloud.

Container metrics

You can see host and container metrics or have a high-level overview of all your containers in Infrastructure reports.

Check out the Sematext Agent installation for containers guide for more info.

Container Alerting

To save you time Sematext automatically creates a set of default alert rules such as alerts for low disk space. You can create additional alerts on any metric.

There are 3 types of alerts in Sematext:

  • Heartbeat alerts, which notify you when a server is down
  • Threshold-based alerts that notify you when a metric value crosses a predefined threshold
  • Alerts based on statistical anomaly detection that notify you when metric values suddenly change and deviate from the baseline

Container Events

Events reflect changes in your infrastructure, from node restarts to container deployments, or changes in running containers. Events can track every container command. Sematext Agent collects events from container runtimes and Kubernetes API. Whenever something goes wrong in your container stack, you can correlate Logs or Metrics with the time of container events.

Container Events

Refer to the Agent container events page for more details on all container events collected by the Sematext Agent.
