Finished Reading: Monitoring Docker

Monitoring Docker is book written by Russ McKendrick and published by Packt Publishing in 2015.

I got this one during the holiday sale for only $5, good deal if you ask me. Monitoring Docker is all about tools for monitoring Docker containers (obviously), sadly it is kind of short and for the technology standards, kind of old already, however, surprisingly, the tools mentioned in the book are still available and nothing has really changed that much.

Most of the tools mentioned in the book are not really specific to Docker containers, yes you can use them for monitoring containers, but that’s not their main goal. Monitoring Docker is a quick read and shouldn’t take you longer than a few hours to complete.

In the end my key only takeaway is the introduction of Sysdig and Sysdig Cloud.
