Docker Moduleedit


This functionality is in beta and is subject to change. The design and code is considered to be less mature than official GA features. Elastic will take a best effort approach to fix any issues, but beta features are not subject to the support SLA of official GA features.

This module fetches metrics from Docker containers.

The docker module is currently not tested on Windows.

Module-Specific Configuration Notesedit

It is strongly recommended that you run Docker metricsets with a period that is 3 seconds or longer. The request to the Docker API already takes up to 2 seconds. Specifying less than 3 seconds will result in requests that timeout, and no data will be reported for those requests.

Example Configurationedit

The Docker module supports the standard configuration options that are described in Modules. Here is an example configuration:

#- module: docker
  #metricsets: ["container", "cpu", "diskio", "healthcheck", "info", "memory", "network"]
  #hosts: ["unix:///var/run/docker.sock"]
  #enabled: true
  #period: 10s

  # To connect to Docker over TLS you must specify a client and CA certificate.
    #certificate_authority: "/etc/pki/root/ca.pem"
    #certificate:           "/etc/pki/client/cert.pem"
    #key:                   "/etc/pki/client/cert.key"


The following metricsets are available:
