Push Docker containers statistics to Zabbix efficiently

Project Description


Docker Zabbix Sender delivers a daemon script that push to Zabbix statistics about Docker containers.

It leverages 2 interesting components:

  • Zabbix maintains a tool titled zabbix-sender. It is meant to push Zabbix trapper items efficiently.
  • Docker 1.5.0 comes with Docker Remote API version 17, providing a new stats endpoint. It allows the client to subscribe to a live feed delivering a container statistics.

The daemon script stands in the middle of those 2 components. It collects Docker containers statistics and transforms them in Zabbix trapper events.

Published metrics

The daemon script already emits a collection of metrics: CPU, memory, and network usage. The module’s API provide mechanism to easily extend the list of published events.


The stable documentation is available on ReadTheDocs
