Re: Site24x7 Launches Docker Monitoring Beta

I can't start docker monitoring at all. I followed the steps as follows:

  1. Install Linux server monitoring agent in your machine.
  2. Click Admin > Inventory > Monitors >  Add Monitor.
  3. Select Docker under Virtualization directory in the Add Monitor screen.
  4. The Add Docker Monitor screen will be displayed. Select Yes/No in the toggle button depending on whether your Linux server is behind a proxy.  
  5. Copy, paste and execute the command snippets in your terminal. The Linux server and the docker application will be auto-discovered by the Linux server agent and added to your account.
However it is still not auto-discovered. Is there any configuration I had missed over here? Please advise. Thank you.

Discovered this while I was browsing around - very cool. I appreciate it's in beta, so I'm just putting this out there (before your product managers start cursing me :) ); I would love if this was available where Docker is hosted on non-Linux servers. OS X is of interest to me (I only just added some monitors for my OS X system - monitoring some FreeBSD VPS is my primary use case) and I imagine Windows will be to others

Hi,


Thanks for your request. We will add the Docker Monitoring in our feature Road Map for other OS. Will keep post the update, if the feature is taken up or ready.


Thanks,

Hi,

We now support Docker monitoring for FreeBSD and OS X as well. The docker containers will be auto discovered once the agent is successfully installed.

Refer our documentation for further assistance.

Comment in the below thread or mail us at support@site24x7.com for any queries on this.

 

Happy Monitoring!

Please add an option to turn off auto-discover of containers ASAP!!! We are receiving 100's of alerts every-time a team does a deployment! 
We dont want this feature and it should not be forced on us and cost us licences, whats worse is that the containers have no data pulled through anyway.

Manually suspending containers is not ideal, this needs sorting now.

Hi,

You can disable auto-discovery of containers for a single docker monitor by following the below steps:

  1. Log in to Site24x7 and go to Server > Docker > Docker Hosts.
  2. Click on the docker monitor added and go to the Containers tab.
  3. Click on Discover Containers.
  4. Uncheck the option Auto-discover and add new container(s).

This will ensure no new containers are added for monitoring. Hope this helps.

UPDATE: This action can now be done in bulk across docker monitors.

 

Regards,

Mathangi

Is there anyway you can add this option to newly added nodes.

When updating K8s we are rebuilding nodes, this is generating hundreds of alerts as they automatically discover containers, meaning we have to go in and disable this again.

I second Paul.

Unchecking auto-discover on specific hosts, or even with a bulk action, is not enough.

There needs to be a way to make it the default for newly installed server monitors.

This is urgent. This new feature is great, but we need to be able to disable it as a default. For many this is a big annoyance.

Hi,

Thank you so much for the feedback. Sure, we are working on bringing this within Configuration Rules so that this setting is automatically applied. Will update this thread once this is live.

Let us know for any other specific requirement, if any, in the below thread.

 

Regards,

Mathangi
