Laying the Groundwork to Monitor Docker Containers

The BoxSpy project is based on the Google cAdvisor effort that enables the analysis of container performance and resource utilization.

However, GroundWork made a number of improvements to cAdvisor, David Dennis, the company’s vice president of marketing and products, told eWEEK. Those improvements transform the cAdvisor application from a technology that is intended to be used as a small-environment, developer-centric monitoring tool to one that can work in large-scale production environments.
