Monitor Podman with UIM

DX Unified Infrastructure Management (Nimsoft / UIM)


There is a latest trend to migrate "Docker" to "Podman" container environment.

Podman is a container engine that’s compatible with the OCI containers specification. Podman can be used as a drop-in replacement for the better-known Docker runtime.

Most Docker commands can be directly translated to Podman commands.


•  Is the probe docker_monitor compatible with Podman? Did you test it?

•  If not - what UIM probe/Tool is addressed for monitoring Podman service containers?


Docker vs Podman comparison ->



Release : 20.3

Component : UIM - DOCKER


Unfortunately, we don't have any out of the box method to monitor Podman. 

docker_monitor uses Docker APIs to retrieve info via http endpoint and/or Unix daemon so it is not feasible to monitor Podman. 


Monitoring support for cloud-native technologies like K8s, Podman, Openshift are part of FY22 roadmap.

Tentative ETAS around Q2/Q3 FY22.
