How to get quick stats on your Docker containers

You have Docker up and running, and you’ve deployed numerous containers onto your network. It should be safe to assume those containers are doing well. But, as we all know, when you assume…

That is especially true within the realm of IT. You never want to assume everything is going okay. To that end, what can you do to monitor your Docker containers? Fortunately, the Docker developers have thought that through, and included a very easy-to-use monitoring tool that gives your insight into how your containers are running.

It’s a very simple tool that gives you a quick insight into how your containers are doing. Should you find your Docker server misbehaving, issue the docker stats command to see if one of your running containers is the culprit. Should you find a container taking up too much in the way of system resources, you could restart that container and recheck the stats. Easy container administration.
