How to monitor Docker containers running in VSPHERE INTEGRATED CONTAINERS

Dear all,

Monitor Docker environment is easy with just installing OneAgent in Docker hosts or deploy OneAgent as a Docker Container in Docker hosts.

However, I have encountered a customer running Docker Container in VMWare Virtual Container Host (VCH).

This VCH is a logical host with an associated endpoint VM based on Photon OS.

You can SSH to this endpoint VM with vic-machine CLI debug mode, however, you cannot install anything in it as it will not persist once this VM restart (it will restore from VM image)

Anyone has experience deploying OneAgent in similar architecture?

Regards,

Satit

@Satit A. were you able to monitor docker containers in Vsphere? did you run into any issues? Did you reach out to support on this? Were there any issues/lessons learned that you ran into?

Same questions as @ChadTurner@satit_dpm how did this story end?
Actually coming across a similar deployment question. If anybody else has some insight that would be great too, of course.

I found a solution based on Wavefront, that makes use of Telegraf. 
Photon OS Host Integration | Tanzu Observability Documentation (wavefront.com)
I can imagine that of OneAgent deployment is not possible, a similar result with Telegraf might be possible?

Hi @fstekelenburg @hchan ,

 

In the end, customer decided to migrate to K8S instead.
So there is no solution needed.

Well, that is also kind of a solution I guess. Thanks, Satit.
