Monitoring containers at New Relic, by New Relic

Mike Panchenko (New Relic)
3:40pm–4:20pm Wednesday, 06/22/2016
Location: Ballroom F Level: Intermediate

Prerequisite knowledge

Attendees should have a general understanding of containers.


New Relic went all-in on on Docker early, and has continued to stay on the forefront of the container ecosystem, both as a user of the technology and as a monitoring vendor. Mike Panchenko explores how New Relic’s teams utilize Docker in a variety of ways using a mix of home-grown and external OSS frameworks. For instance, New Relic’s team working on next-gen infrastructure monitoring uses Mesos/Marathon and some vanilla Docker containers to manage its deployments. Mike briefly reviews New Relic’s mostly sensible setup, mentions a few gotchas the team encountered along the way, and shows how New Relic uses its very own products to monitor the stack.

We love using what we’ve built, and we think you will too.

This session is sponsored by New Relic.
