PRTG mendukung Docker Container Status Sensor

Docker Containers are the new hot thing in terms of virtualization! First published in 2013 they have become popular extremely fast—meanwhile even Windows Server 2016 offers Docker Container integration. Not only do DevOps love Docker Containers as an easy to use and, first and foremost, quickly implementable virtualization method but network administrators also like to use them to efficiently roll out and reliably manage applications.

Reasons that Docker Containers are growing so quickly in popularity is their availability and performance. To ensure that, the containers have to be controlled continuously. Special tools are available for that purpose and there are also some application performance monitoring tools that can do so, but ideally this should happen within the monitoring solution that is already monitoring the network, applications, other virtual environments such as VMware, HyperV or Xen, email traffic, storage systems or websites; in short Docker Containers are part of the IT infrastructure and should be integrated into the central IT monitoring solution.
PRTG now has a dedicated Docker Container Status sensor. With this sensor, you can see all the important information about your Docker Containers that's available at one glance. You will be informed if failures or issues show up so you can proactively react. Here is an overview of all the available values in detail:
  • Status
  • Uptime/Downtime
  • CPU Usage
  • Available Memory Value/Percent
  • Packets in/out
  • Traffic in/out
  • Exit Code
The PRTG Docker Container Status sensor displays the different values as Channels. For each channel you can define individual thresholds which will affect the sensor's status and with these status changes, trigger notifications and alerts.
