PLEASANTON, Calif. - July 10, 2015 - Site24x7, the cloud monitoring service for DevOps and IT operations, today announced the launch of Docker monitoring beta, a new feature that provides insight into Docker containers. Available immediately, the new Docker monitoring feature can monitor the performance of applications and transactions even as they pass through multiple containers.
Docker is a fast-growing, open platform that automates the deployment of applications inside software containers. Large enterprises and startups have understood the benefits of moving from single, large applications to small, adjustable microservices. Developers are using containers for writing applications in microservices. Meanwhile, IT operation teams are putting container-based applications into production alongside applications in virtual machines by using containerization software such as Docker.
"Docker is helping developers build and IT teams deploy applications at a higher scale," said Gibu K. Mathew, director of product management, Site24x7. "With its support for Docker, Site24x7 now gives the visibility needed for DevOps to remain in control of the new dynamics of production applications. Additionally, Site24x7's application performance monitoring capability is a great complement for visibility into apps running on Docker."
With Site24x7 Docker monitoring, companies can now track containers and get better visibility into the performance metrics, such as total number of containers, running containers, images, CPU usage, memory usage, bytes received and transmitted, network bandwidth and more.
Docker provides a remote interface for container stats, which is exposed via UNIX domain socket by default, and Site24x7's Linux agent uses this interface to collect Docker performance metrics. Site24x7 also supports other forms of server monitoring for Linux, Windows, public clouds (Amazon Web Services) and virtualization technology (VMware). Site24x7 is an official member of the Docker Partner Program.
Site24x7 Docker monitoring is available immediately to evaluate for free during the beta testing and comes as a standard feature with the Site24x7 Standard pack and above.
