Simply Accessible Container Performance Monitoring with SuperVisor

Observability of containers

Containerization is an awesome next-step forward when it comes to deploying services and applications reliably without needing to worry about the intricacies of adding dependencies and configuring environments. One can easily deploy, utilize, upgrade and remove these with just a few lines of commands and the unintrusiveness nature of the containers is almost very rewarding for the sysadmins — now that they do not have to worry about taking care of the residual configurations!

Your personalized dashboard for monitoring your container stations

How do I set it up at my end?

You would really want to take it for a spin if you liked what you saw above. Setting up SuperVisor on a Docker station is literally as easy as following the provided three steps in sequence.

Here’s an animated follow-up about how you can set up the driver service at your end
docker run -d \
--restart unless-stopped \
--name supervisor-driver-service \
-p 8888:8888 \
-p 6969:6969 \
-v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
docker logs supervisor-driver-service ,---. . ,o
`---.. .,---.,---.,---.| |.,---.,---.,---.
|| || ||---'| \ / |`---.| ||
`---'`---'|---'`---'` `' ``---'`---'`
