Docker has taken the application economy by storm over the past year, becoming an essential tool for building and running software. The open platform allows you to package an application into a standardized unit for software development and deployment – ensuring that it will always run the same, regardless of the environment.
Docker container adoption is extremely popular among developers, and it is quickly shifting to production, forcing application monitoring tools to adapt to be able to monitor applications deployed in a Docker environment.
The Benefits of Using Application Performance Management to Monitor Docker Containers
Although Docker containers bring a lot of advantages to the table, they can also bring new challenges to enterprise IT in implementation, deployment and monitoring. But don't fret, help is available.
