Check manual page of docker_container_status

Docker: Container Status
Distribution official part of Check_MK
License GPL
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 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_containers_client" (the default setting is fine).

Discovery

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