Rapid7 Recognized by Docker as Approved Ecosystem Technology Partner
IT and DevOps teams can face challenges when trying to interpret container-level activity and its impact on application performance. As container environments scale up and down autonomously, efficiently capturing data for near real-time investigation and analysis can be difficult. Rapid7 Logentries' log collection container and Docker Insights Dashboard allow teams to easily reveal previously undiscovered insights from their Docker environments.
“Rapid7 takes an innovative approach to Docker container monitoring by offering an open source log collection container to run on your host environment as a microservice,” said
“We've worked closely with our user communities to develop a best-practice approach to scalable collection of Docker container logs, metrics, and events,” said
Rapid7 Logentries’ approach to container monitoring aligns with microservice best practices. Users can simply run Logentries’ open source log collection container as a microservice on their Docker host environment. The container automatically collects and centralizes application logs, container metrics, and Docker events, enabling users to query their data using the Rapid7 Logentries Query Language (LEQL) and visualize their Docker data with Logentries’ Docker Insights Dashboard.
Automatically provisioned during a free trial and always available for free as a Community Pack, the Logentries Docker Insights Dashboard correlates container-level metrics and Docker events into a single view of key metrics including:
- Indicators for number of containers created, started, stopped, and killed
- Bar charts for most intensive memory and CPU by image and container
- Line graphs for network traffic received and transferred over time
- Alerts for when containers are created, started, stopped, and killed
- Alerts for when CPU is maxed out or when memory exceeds specified thresholds
Docker’s ETP program recognizes ecosystem partners that have demonstrated integration with the Docker platform. As part of the program, Docker will highlight a capability area within the application lifecycle, validate integration, and communicate the availability of the partner’s solution to the community and the market. The goal of the program is to ensure that organizations offering logging tools have been working with Docker to ensure the highest degree of availability and performance of distributed applications. Partners included in this program have proven integration with the Docker platform and have demonstrated that their solution is able to record logging data for Dockerized applications.
