Can App Mon Monitor Docker Runtime?

Hey Community,

Had a question around monitoring Docker. I know we can monitor Docker Containers using the Docker Monitor Plugin, but we were wondering about monitoring the Docker runtime itself?

Has anyone out there tried this? If we can't do this via an AppMon agent, does anyone know if there is an API we can hook in to to get metrics from the runtime?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Matt

The Docker runtime is native (actually the containerization happens at
the kernel level!) so you wouldn't be able to hook it with an agent.

Hey Rick,

Thanks for your answer, this is what we needed to know!
