Docker container health

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: Linux

Monitors the health status of docker containers, as reported via the HEALTHCHECK API. A Status of "healthy" is treated as OK, "starting" as WARN, "unhealthy" as CRIT.

To make this check work the agent plugin {} has to be installed. If you are using agent bakery rules, you must enable "Piggybacked docker containers". If you are configuring the plugin via the configuration file, make sure you do not skip th section "docker_containers_client" (the default setting is fine).




One check per container is discovered if HEALTHCHECK has been implemented for this container.
