Monitor your Linux Containers with cgroups and Netdata

containers

What is the Linux containers project?

Containers is the umbrella project behind LXC, LXD and LXCFS. If you’re using cgroup-based Linux Containers for your infastructure and application environments, you can use Netdata’s pre-built integration to monitor and troubleshoot both the container and the application it runs for resource usage, CPU, memory allocation, and more.

Why monitor Linux Containers with Netdata?

Monitor with Netdata

Get notified of what’s happening with your Linux Containers

Monitoring Linux Containers with Netdata alerts you to bottlenecks and issues before they affect your end users. Set up custom alarms to gauge the health status and potential threats to your cgroups. Notifications are enabled to help you detect anomalies using metrics like resource usage, CPU, memory allocation, and much more.

Netdata’s Linux Containers integration is designed for a proactive response when scaling your systems and networks. These metrics are crucial to track, and Netdata is able to notify you of emerging issues. Utilize Netdata’s alarms to fix problems proactively.

Analyze Linux Containers performance with data visualization

Access all of your Containers metrics with pre-built charts, or create custom dashboards for your team’s specific use case.

With our preconfigured dashboards, you will have instant access to visualizations with monitoring metrics like resource usage, CPU, memory allocation, and more. Find root cause analysis answers with intuitive graphs of what’s going on within your infrastructure.

Custom dashboards are created using simple HTML. These dashboards are flexible and designed to capture metrics on all of your Netdata servers.
