Docker Certified Logging Containers and Plugins from Partners

    The Docker Certified Technology Program is designed for ecosystem partners and customers to recognize Containers and Plugins that excel in quality, collaborative support and compliance. Docker Certification gives organizations enterprises an easy way to run trusted software and components in containers on the Docker Enterprise container platform with support from both Docker and the publisher.   In this review, we’re looking at Docker Logging Containers and Plugins. Docker Enterprise provides built-in logging drivers to help users get information from docker nodes, running containers and services. The Docker Engine also exposes a Docker Logging Plugin API for use by Partner Docker logging plugins. The user’s needs are solved by innovations from the extensive Docker ecosystem that extend Docker’s logging capabilities which provide complete log management solutions that include searching, visualizing, monitoring, and alerting. These solutions are validated by both Docker Continue reading…

Docker Certified Containers from Monitoring Partners

  The Docker Certified Technology Program is designed for ecosystem partners and customers to recognize Containers and Plugins that excel in quality, collaborative support and compliance. Docker Certification gives organizations enterprises an easy way to run trusted software and components in containers on the Docker Enterprise container platform with support from both Docker and the publisher. In this review, we’re looking at solutions to monitor Docker containers. Docker enables developers to iterate faster with software architectures consisting of many microservices. This poses a challenge to traditional monitoring solutions as the target processes are no longer statically allocated or tied to particular hosts. Monitoring solutions are now expected to track ephemeral and rapidly scaling sets of containers. The Docker Engine exposes APIs for container metadata, lifecycle events, and key performance metrics. Partner Monitoring solutions  collect both system and Docker container events and metrics Continue reading…
