Monitoring Docker with Metricbeat

Over the past couple years, Docker environments have become more and more common. It is critical to monitor these environments. Metricbeat offers two different possibilities to monitor Docker containers: cgroups and Docker API.

In this talk, Andrew will discuss the differences and similarities between the two approaches with the pros and cons of each. He will also give a live demo to show how to set up Metricbeat for Docker monitoring and get insights.
