Linux Agent on Docker
Installation of the Stackify Linux Agent is required on the docker Host system; it should not be installed on containers.
When installing the Linux Agent on the docker host add the
--docker argument to the installation script.
wget https://s1.stackify.com/Account/AgentDownload/Linux --output-document=stackify.tar.gz && \ tar -zxvf stackify.tar.gz stackify-agent-install-32bit && \ cd stackify-agent-install-32bit && \ sudo ./agent-install.sh --docker --key "YOUR ACTIVACTION KEY" --environment "YOUR ENVIRONMENT NAME"
APM on Docker
APM for Docker containers requires a volume to be setup between the host and containers.
Adjust your container startup to include
docker run --pid=host -v /usr/local/stackify:/usr/local/stackify ubuntu
Note: This creates a shared data volume between the docker host and containers at
/usr/local/stackifyand instructs docker to use unique pids across containers.
Modify your application containers to include the correct application profiler.
Restart your application and make requests, see results flow into Retrace.
Unable to Install Linux Agent
If you do not have access to install the Linux Agent on the host system, try our Stackify Retrace Container instructions at https://hub.docker.com/r/stackify/retrace. This feature is currently a Beta release.
