What is Container Monitoring?
Containers are software images that package together an application’s code with all of its dependencies, such as runtime, system libraries, system tools and settings. Containerizing applications in this way allows them to run in any computing environment, regardless of the underlying infrastructure. Running and managing containers at scale, including clustering them together and moving them to different cloud platforms, requires a container orchestration platform like Kubernetes. Container monitoring software detects and monitors applications running in containerized workloads, providing deeper performance insights into the services supporting these business applications, including databases and cloud environments.
The OpsRamp platform helps IT teams support the detection and monitoring of applications running in containerized workloads, including individual Docker hosts and Kubernetes clusters, across on-premises and multi-cloud environments. Kubernetes administrators can gain deeper insights into the services supporting their business applications and receive answers to questions such as:
