AMA question




How do you monitor Windows containers? Not host OS but actual individual containers and as a deployed service in container orchestration. SCOM does not support it, OMS is rudiment at best.

I would be building healthcheck policies at the orchestrator layer that will flag the container is health/unhealthy and then optionally you can provide remediation policies (restart etc…).
Yes, that is part of the image. I'm interested in some graph, historical data, CPU etc. Basically the same stuff you can get off running VM for overall health of entire service
I did not test it myself, but DataDog apparently does that. I did see some screen shots...
