How to Monitor Docker Metrics | Container Performance Monitoring Explained - Sematext
Find out which are the key Docker metrics you should be monitoring when deploying your containers to ensure the health and performance of your system.
Monitoring Docker containers is an essential step in development but is not always an easy thing to do. Even though Docker helped overcome some of the challenges of migrating from a monolithic architecture to a distributed system, it does come with a potential downside when it comes to monitoring. Having multiple containers across a wide variety of hosts that change their scale in milliseconds makes traditional monitoring tools totally obsolete.
deploying your containers on cloud-based, serverless, or hybrid architectures now requires dynamic monitoring tools. Modern monitoring tools for distributed architectures help track essential Docker metrics and ensure your whole system functions as it should. If you don't know where to start, this short tutorial will give you everything that you need.
