Network Monitoring Software for Docker

Today, we are announcing a Docker version of our Network Monitoring Agent. This Docker version makes it very easy for IT teams running Docker infrastructures such as Kubernetes, AWS ECS or Docker Swarm to deploy the Obkio Software Agent.

The configuration is done through environment variables that keeps the deployment stateless and very simple. However, a single agent can only be up

All the details for the installation is available on Docker Hub image obkio/agent.

Should you have any questions about the Docker container, reach out to us or visit the Network Performance Community Forums.

Docker Agent Availability

Obkio’s Docker agent is available for both Linux and Windows operating systems (x86 64-bits architectures), which provides you with flexible deployment options to meet your needs.

That’s because Obkio’s Software Agent installs on a Linux server (Virtual or Bare metal) based on CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu.

Recently, we made our software agent available on Windows 10, with the release of our network monitoring agent for Windows which uses the same agent that’s built and delivered by Linux, but uses the Windows Subsystem for Linux 2020 update (WSL 2) as its backend.

Other features of the Obkio Software Agent for Linux & Windows 10 include:

  • Low Footprint: Our software agent requires very little system resources, including as low as 2 vCPU, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of disk.

  • Single Command Installation: Installing the software agent is easy! All you need to do is paste a single command line provided by the application. A cron will then be installed to keep the agent up-to-date.

  • Ideal for Data Centers and Clouds: The software agent can be deployed in Data centers, Cloud environments or at any locations where a Linux machine is available to host the software.
