User Story

As a PRTG User, I want ... the current docker beta sensor and any final version of it to include a channel for "memory usage", not just the "available memory" channel that is there today.

Details of User Story

The current docker beta sensor shows the available memory of a sensor, which can very from container to container per user imput. But it does not currently show the amount of memory used by a container, so doing any longer term tracking of if a container is suddenly using a lot more ram then normal cannot be done. as an example, the "docker stats" command shows this data:

CONTAINER ID NAME CPU % MEM USAGE / LIMIT MEM % NET I/O BLOCK I/O PIDS 4d4d80a05f02 my_tinyproxy 0.00% 13.49MiB / 1.925GiB 0.68% 838MB / 839MB 0B / 0B 21 59f9b1bc6313 access-gateway 0.03% 35.33MiB / 1.925GiB 1.79% 5.81kB / 2.48kB 0B / 0B 11

Acceptance criteria

  • Add channel to the docker sensor that shows the memory used of a docker container
