Docker: Container Uptime

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

This check outputs the uptime of the monitored containers (when the last start was and how much time has elapsed since). This check can go WARN or CRIT when the uptime is below or above certain configurable levels.

To make this check work the agent plugin {mk_docker.py} 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 the section "docker_container_status" (the default setting is fine).


One service is created for each active container (running or restart policy 'always'), unless the uptime plugin has discovered a service.
