Please allow me to refer to the following articles:

Docker monitoring with PRTG
Docker Container Status Sensor

Is that what you are looking for?

As of now PRTG has no dedicated sensors or device templates to monitor Kubernetes, I'm afraid. Should Kubernetes offer some kind of API, then maybe you can monitor it using the REST Custom Sensor.

Kind Regards,

Hi Dambach,

I have more question... 1. Is PRTG Network Monitor x64 version support for Docker? 2. Do you have manual or instruction to add docker sensor?

Thank you so much! Eric.

Yes, the sensor can be used in version x64. Please have a look at the "Remarks"-section at the mentioned manual entry. There you'll find the requirements for this sensor. Otherwise this sensor can be added like every other sensor. Please let me know if you need further assistance here.
