Unified monitoring business GroundWork has released GroundWork Monitor Docker Edition, and new solution designed to deploy directly to existing Docker and other Linux container environments.
GroundWork Monitor Docker Edition consists of GroundWork Monitor, GroundWork Cloud Hub and GroundWork BoxSpy and the pre-packaged version of GroundWork is itself optimised for running as a Docker container.
The solution provides performance and availability monitoring for:
- Docker containers
- Linux containers
- OpenStack private cloud
- Amazon public cloud
- Hypervisors (VMware, KVM, RHEV-M, Hyper V)
- Virtual servers, Applications, Networks (including OpenDaylight SDNs), Storage and Physical devices
When used in a Docker container GroundWork claims the solution has quicker deployment and launch times and will monitor and gather metrics for Docker host, containers, applications, hypervisor, HW, network and storage as well as monitoring other IT infrastructure outside of the Docker environment.
