User Story

As a PRTG User, I want that the docker sensor automatically detects new container and keep the sensor history on a container redeployment

Details of User Story

if i today monitor a docker host with the docker sensor, the senor connects over the docker socket on the host and gets the container information from the host. If i replace the container on the host with a new version, then prtg marks the container as down. We have do start the auto-discovery each time, to be able to see the container. Unfortunately the whole sensor history is gone, because prtg thinks that's a new container.

Acceptance criteria

  • If the Container is replaces with a new Container Image, PRTG should notice that and not send a down notification
  • Be able to replace a container with a new version without loosing the sensor history
