Docker Monitoring

With OpsDash, you can quickly start monitoring Docker, and get instant insight into key performance and health metrics. OpsDash dashboards come pre-configured, setup to monitor the most important Docker metrics. No messing around with individual metrics, figuring out which of them are important, no editing graph templates.

Here’s how OpsDash’s curated dashboards come out of the box:

You can go from 0 to this in just a minute or two! OpsDash strives to save you the tedious work of setting up a useful dashboard. The metrics you see here were carefully chosen to ensure effective Docker monitoring.

This dashboard shows key metrics relevant to the Docker daemons’s health and performance:

  • Image Count: The count of active and inactive images stored locally by Docker.
  • Image Size: The total disk usage of active and reclaimable images stored locally by Docker.
  • Container Count: The count of containers, segragated by state: created, running, paused, restarting, removing, exited and dead.
  • Container Size: The total size of disk used by containers, with used and reclaimable parts tracked separately.
  • Volume Count: The count of active and inactive volumes maintained by this Docker daemon.
  • Volume Size: The total size of disk used by volumes, with used and reclaimable parts tracked separately.
  • CPU Usage: The percentage of host CPU used by all currently running containers.
  • Memory Usage: The amount of host memory used by all currently running containers.
  • Network Bandwidth: The transmit and receive bandwidth of host network used by all currently running containers.
  • Disk Throughput: The disk read and write throughput (bytes/second) used by all currently running containers.
  • Process Count: The total number of processes running across all containers currently.

You’ll want to set warning and critical upper limits for these metrics so that you can identify and address emerging issues before they bite. You can quickly setup your alerts in OpsDash and send notifications by Slack, Hipchat, OpsGenie, VictorOps, PagerDuty or Email.

If your setup requires that you monitor some additional metrics, that’s easy too. Each OpsDash Smart Agent includes the industry-standard statsd interface (and even a graphite interface) to easily report custom metrics.

With OpsDash, Docker monitoring is fast and easy. Try it!
