cAdvisor (Container Advisor) provides container users an understanding of the resource usage and performance characteristics of their running containers. It is a running daemon that collects, aggregates, processes, and exports information about running containers. Specifically, for each container it keeps resource isolation parameters, historical resource usage, histograms of complete historical resource usage and network statistics. This data is exported by container and machine-wide.
NOTE: This package will install by default a single instance of cAdvisor in each host of your cluster.
This package is intended to be used alongside the DC/OS ‘influxdb’ and ‘grafana’ packages for a cluster-wide monitoring solution.
This DC/OS Service is currently in preview. There may be bugs, incomplete features, incorrect documentation, or other discrepancies.
Advanced Installation options notes
networking / external_access: create an entry in Marathon-LB for accessing the service from outside of the cluster. Please note that each access to this endpoint will connect you to a SINGLE instance of cAdvisor running in one of the nodes of your cluster.
networking / external_access_port: port to be used in Marathon-LB for accessing the service.
