Container Monitoring

Lightning-fast monitoring for even the most ephemeral resources. Get visibility into your containerized applications alongside your hybrid IT infrastructure in a single monitoring platform that scales with you. LogicMonitor automatically detects and monitors containers as they change, understands when they disappear, and retains performance data about the nature of the container.

Rapidly deploy dynamic container monitoring

Save time with container monitoring you can trust. LogicMonitor automatically discovers containers, microservices, and underlying resources. Identify and solve issues quickly and precisely. LogicMonitor’s container monitoring provides insight into application performance and health, container components, and their underlying resources.

Total container monitoring


Comprehensively monitor Kubernetes from clusters to Kubelets as they change. LogicMonitor automatically adds and removes cluster resources from monitoring – including nodes, pods, services, and more.


Monitoring at the speed of containers. Built-in Docker integrations and automated discovery ensures visibility of all ephemeral resources.

Hybrid monitoring to correlate containers with on-premise infrastructure

As businesses modernize and refactor workloads in the cloud, container use becomes increasingly valuable.

  • LogicMonitor presents container insights alongside your organization’s existing monitored hybrid infrastructure in a single unified monitoring platform for visibility across operations teams.
  • Gain insights at the service level over containers to monitor, visualize, and alert on aggregate service level data for holistic business information.

Keep your containerized applications healthy

Organizations need insights into the performance of applications that are running in containers, as well as the health of the underlying container resources and orchestration components.

  • LogicMonitor presents insights alongside your organization’s existing monitored hybrid infrastructure in a single, unified monitoring platform.
  • Focus on the health and performance of the overall service, regardless of changes in underlying resource at both the cluster and application levels
  • LogicMonitor retains data about the performance of the service or application that runs in the container for historical knowledge about container health.

Monitor and track dynamic services and ephemeral resources

Containers and pods are ephemeral resources. It’s difficult to monitor components that may appear (and disappear) quickly and unpredictably. To accurately track ephemeral resources, LogicMonitor employs event-based discovery.

  • Cluster resources are automatically added and removed from monitoring based on Kubernetes events or changes in microservices.
  • Dynamically group together containers and other ephemeral resources supporting common microservices.

Event-based Kubernetes monitoring: a new level of clarity

Event-based Kubernetes monitoring eliminates the most common challenges of monitoring ephemeral resources by:

  • Automatically adding and removing cluster resources including nodes, pods, and services
  • Eliminating the need to deploy an agent on every node
  • Providing insights on underutilized resources to optimize CPU, memory, and more
  • Storing data for up to two years

Identify performance trends

Maintaining data continuity with the complexity of modern applications is challenging.
LogicMonitor uses data across resources supporting a common application to provide long-term views into how that application performs over time.

  • Key performance indicators are aggregated across grouped resources to provide monitoring for the health and performance of the service as a whole.
  • LogicMonitor offers intelligent contextual alerting so you can see what matters, solve problems quickly, and remove alert storm distractions.
  • LogicMonitor proactively alerts you when a container isn’t performing optimally through pre-built or dynamic thresholds.

Track your company’s network and devices with LogicMonitor.

It’s great since we don’t have to install bothersome agents on the devices or hardware that we want to monitor. I didn’t even need to consult the instructions or contact customer support when I wanted to add a device; the process is simple and easy to follow.

The tool for strategic Managed Services partners

SolarWinds had the big breach just as we left it. We loved how powerful it was, and how customizable – however, it is an ON-Prem tool, and as a growing MSP, that dynamic didn’t and couldn’t scale.

LogicMonitor makes container monitoring easy

Benefits of monitoring your containers with LogicMonitor include:

Automated discovery

Frequent and recurring discovery attempts ensure that your monitoring is always up to date. Metadata is automatically populated during discovery, to give you the contextual information you need when viewing and managing monitored resources.

Performance Health

Get long-term views into how a group of resources supporting a common application are performing and correlate performance trends with events.

Dynamic Thresholds

Downtime prevention

Pre-configured alert thresholds ensure that you receive meaningful alerts right away to help proactively prevent downtime.


Dynamic grouping

Dynamic grouping for resources supporting a common service makes it simpler to manage and schedule downtime for those resources. LM Container Helm charts allow you to install all the services necessary to monitor your Kubernetes cluster.

Using LogicMonitor’s Veeam Backup & Replication package, you can monitor the health of this application’s backup, synchronization, and replication operations, as well as the operational state, availability, and maximum task counts of the VMware and Hyper-V proxy hosts.

Service health

Out-of-the-box dashboards provide immediate insights to help you identify how you can optimize your cluster.

Microservice and Container Monitoring FAQs

What are microservices

Microservices are an architectural approach to development that is composed of small, individual services that can be built and work on their own, but can be added together for faster development. Microservices are autonomous, allowing each service to work functionally on it’s own.

What are containers

Containers are bundled packages of software that contain all of the necessary elements to function. A container can house one microservice and the libraries and tools needed for it to function, as well as house multiple microservices together for an entire application to run.

What are ephemeral containers?

Ephemeral containers a kind of Kubernetes container that temporarily runs in a pod, and can spin up as necessary, which are used primarily for troubleshooting workloads.
