Sematext is offering Docker monitoring with the SPM performance monitoring solution.

Here's a brief summary of what is included:

- Out-of-the-box Dashboards and unlimited custom Dashboards

- Easy to install docker agent

- Monitoring of multiple Docker Hosts and unlimited number of Containers per SPM Docker App

- Predefined Dashboards for all Host and Container metrics

- OS Metrics of the Docker Host

- Detailed Container Metrics

- Threshold-based Alerts on all metrics mentioned above including Custom Metrics

- Machine learning-based Anomaly Detection on all metrics, including Custom Metrics

- Alerting via email, PagerDuty, Nagios and Webhooks  (e.g. Slack, HipChat)

- Correlation with logs shipped to Logsene

- Charting and correlation with arbitrary Events

Getting Docker monitoring "right" is critical, as Docker deployments can be very dynamic with containers being started and stopped, moved around the YARN or Mesos-managed clusters, having very short life spans (the so-called pets) or long uptimes (aka cattle). Being able to obtain insight into the current and historical state of such clusters goes beyond collecting container performance metrics and sending alert notifications. If a container dies or gets paused, for example, you may want to know about it, right? Or maybe you'd want to be able to see that a container went belly up in retrospect when troubleshooting, wouldn't you? SPM for Docker was built to solve problems like these.
