Container technologies have captivated the computing world. Containers are the cornerstone for cloud computing and microservice architectures. Whether it be Docker™, Docker Compose™, or Kubernetes™, the IT world is embracing this technology with great enthusiasm.
How can you monitor containers? They are different from traditional hosts and servers. For one thing, they are not physical machines; nor are they virtual machines. Containers can be spun up to handle periodic load, and then torn down when no longer needed. With Kubernetes, containers can also be replicated and load balanced in pods across clusters.
