Docker dynamic hostnames


So with docker you get dynamically created hostnames. This is usually fine, if we are talking about 10 - 15 hosts.

However, we have a situation where docker containers are being spawned and respawned as a part of build and dev processes, which creates around 3 - 400 new hosts each day.

One wouldn't think this to be a problem, but it is.

Dynatrace AppMon does not handle over a certain amount of hosts in its infrastructure.config.xml in a good way.

Frontendserver starts to slow down, and dashboards become sluggish.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix / remediate this?

Can the hostnames be semi dynamic?

Can we control it using environment variables, or docker settings?
