Docker: Container Status

Distribution Official part of Checkmk
License GPLv2
Supported Agents Linux
Monitors the status of docker containers. A status of "running" is treated as OK, any other status is treated as CRIT.

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


One service is created for each container that is running or has the restart policy set to 'always'.
