In order to monitor docker containers the {{check_mk_agent}} collects the following information of each docker container as piggyback data:

  • The state, node name, labels and network information
  • Execution of the {{check_mk_agent}} within running containers

Moreover you have to create piggybacked hosts in Check_MK for each docker container. The piggybacked host name is the docker container ID.

Due to a long running time of these sections they are transferred to the plugin {{mk_docker_container_piggybacked}} which also can be executed asynchronously.

That means that these sections were removed from the {{check_mk_agent}} and you have to install the plugin to the plugins folder on the client.
