Although container deployments are increasing in popularity, the complexity of containerized application environments is preventing many businesses from getting the best out of the technology. With the right container monitoring tools, you can simplify container operations and ensure applications running on containers are performing optimally. It gives IT teams a quick overview to rapidly develop and deploy applications using DevOps principles.
Containers are perfect to support fast scaling or routine software releases. Rapid software deployment means constant change, in some cases with the possibilities of new releases or patches on an almost daily basis. This expands the probability of problems sneaking in.
Since containers are neither processes nor hosts, the traditional ways of monitoring aren't enough. Applications Manager's container monitoring system capabilities come with metrics aggregation, alerting and visualization—all married into a single console. You can monitor container performance and identify problems proactively to prevent outages, help applications run better, and implement changes safely by resolving issues quickly with our tool.
Monitor container stats without reservation using Applications Manager. Our container monitoring software enables you to monitor the metrics of all the containers, and presents a consolidated view of the clusters and nodes in your IT environment. It helps you understand how your hosted applications are behaving.
Track the capacity and resource utilization of your containers and drill down into specific parts of the cluster with extensive usage stats provided by our container monitoring tool. Metrics related to pods, nodes, persistent volumes, replication and clusters are available at your disposal.
Create and associate thresholds to metrics to trigger alarms and automated corrective actions upon a breach. This will reduce the MTTR of the faults by a large margin. Make educated decisions regarding your containers with Applications Manager's container management tool which collects and aggregates data over a period of time and interprets it visually for easy understanding. You can also anticipate future utilization and performance trends with Forecast Reports which uses Machine Learning technique to predict the growth and usage.
Since Cisco UCS is an integrated, scalable, container solution platform, a diverse population of applications and servers resides in the environment, and the performance of these applications must be monitored both individually and as a unit. Monitor response times, resource utilization, faults, processors, and other hardware with Applications Manager's Docker container monitoring capabilities to recognize decline in performance, and identify the reason your system has deviated from the ideal performance.
Kubernetes orchestration allows users to build application services across multiple containers, schedule those containers across a cluster, scale those containers, and manage the health of those containers over time. Applications Manager's Kubernetes monitoring software lets administrators adapt various Kubernetes cluster monitoring strategies to account for the new infrastructure layers introduced (when adopting containers and the container orchestration) within a distributed Kubernetes environment.
The Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform has a broad set of powerful functions available to users.These containers are complex to set up, monitor, and maintain. With Applications Manager's container monitoring tools, you can simplify application maintenance and ensure that OpenShift performance is up to par.
