Standalone Machine Agent Settings for Docker Visibility
You can configure the following Docker Visibility settings on the Standalone Machine Agent.
The Machine Agent can monitor up to 120 running containers (depending on the pool size configuration, described below) and does not prioritize. The agent collects metrics from containers that run with a configurable regex. By default, this regex matches processes that are are running with the
Default = "
You can configure this option in the following file: <machine-agent-home>/extensions/DockerMonitoring/conf/DockerMonitoring.yml

|Docker Metric Collector Pool Size|
The Standalone Machine Agent can monitor up to 15 containers by default. You can configure the agent to monitor up to 120 containers at the same time: set the pool size to 5 (the default setting is 3). The trade-off is that increasing the pool size will consume more resources on the agent host.
Controller Settings for Docker Visibility
|sim.docker.enabled||Enable the Docker Monitoring feature.||true|
|sim.docker.machine.container.limit||Global limit for the number of containers to monitor per machine. You can specify this in the Administration Console as a Controller setting (all accounts) or as an Account setting for individual accounts. 120 is the maximum limit you can specify.||15|
Reuse SIM Machine entities to handle ephemeral environment. Support is limited to docker container machines for now.
If set to false, every new container will be considered a new machine.
|sim.docker.apmNode.markHistorical.enabled||Mark the APM nodes as historical when a container running an app agent is stopped.||true|
