Docker Monitoring

Docker insights for business impact

AppDynamics Docker monitoring offers enterprise-grade container monitoring right out of the box for dynamic, fast-moving microservice architectures.

Fully automated Docker monitoring

End-to-end, unified microservices monitoring for Docker hosts and all monitored containers -- plus application code -- all from a single, simple interface.


An out of the box end-to-end solution

Instantly discover application topology and start monitoring performance by using AppDynamics container images available in the Docker Store — a trusted registry validated by Docker. Integrate Docker monitoring as part of your CI/CD process to speed up continuous delivery. Adhere to security best practices by running monitoring containers in the least privileged mode.

Full-stack visibility to optimize application performance

Understand every metric and every event on Docker hosts, and all monitored containers and applications — down to the line of code. Immediately identify hot-running containers to remediate resource contention issues. Quickly triage performance issues and avoid alert storms by automatically identifying root cause.

Modernize traditional applications with confidence

Run traditional applications or develop cloud-native microservices all within the same consistent AppDynamics interface — avoiding people, process, and technology silos. Be confident in the performance of every microservice, no matter the architecture, complexity, or scale. Run Docker containers on any cloud, including AWS, Azure, GCP, or on-premises private cloud with any orchestrator, such as Kubernetes, Docker Swarm, or Mesos.

Drive business value

Easily understand the correlation between customer experience, containerized application performance, and business outcomes. Create a common language between business and IT, helping IT teams drive business success rather than simply supporting it. Proactively manage risk and prove business value with every code release.

AppDynamics puts your IT teams at the center of business success

"We can see everything inside both our dynamic container infrastructure and the microservices running inside the containers. AppDynamics gives us unprecedented insight. "

An Introduction to Docker

The Docker platform is all about making it easier to create, deploy and run applications by using containers. Containers let developers package up an application with all of the necessary parts, such as libraries and other elements it is dependent upon, and then ship it all out as one package.

Best Practices for Instrumenting Containers with AppDynamics Agents

There are many ways to instrument Docker containers with AppDynamics agents. Here are some best practices that work well in large Docker environments.

Complete visibility into Docker containers with AppDynamics

AppDynamics provides visibility into applications and business transactions made out of multiple smaller decoupled (micro) services deployed in a Docker environment using the Docker monitoring solution.
