Today we announced that we’ve joined Docker’s new Ecosystem Technology Partner (ETP) program in the monitoring category.

docker-etp-badgeSince the advent of the Docker Stats API, we’ve been working on the docker-collectd plugin (Max’s pull requests were merged here and here!).

 

Now anyone can use SignalFx to monitor their Dockerized apps at any scale with:

  • High resolution: You can send metrics up to and including one second resolution, or any mix of resolutions and see them in streaming dashboards that are updated every second.
  • Streaming and historical analytics: Our SignalFlow™ technology computes and displays the results of your custom analytics pipelines at any scale–like percentiles and time-over-time comparisons across entire fleets–within seconds of the raw data.
  • Multidimensional metrics: All metrics can be multi-dimensional, allowing you to aggregate, filter and model the data however you like, such as the 99th-percentile-of-latency-by-service-and-customer.

Because SignalFx doesn’t limit the kinds of metrics you use in any way, our users can now correlate container-level performance metrics with everything from underlying infrastructure metrics to application performance to end-user behavior and events like code pushes–with beautiful visualizations, powerful analytics, and alerting–all in one place.
