Docker Swarm

Hi,

I've a question about the Docker (béta) sensor. This sensor is working, but our containers works in a Swarm. In a Swarm the name of each container is not unique. Beside name there's a unique id in the name. When one container is stopped and restarted, this name has changed (ID). Is there a way to monitor a swarm instead of monitor a docker node?

thanks

docker prtg swarm

Hello again,

So the sensor does not support monitoring Docker swarms, however, considering Docker's API you can use the REST Custom Sensor to retrieve the data you'd like.

Kind regards,

Erhard
