Issue/Introduction

Question:

On APM 10.1, can a Java application running in a Docker container be monitored by APM?

 

Answer:

Yes, the Java Agent (Linux distribution) has undergone testing within a Docker container environment.  Should an issue arise from using it, we will work with the customer to address them.  We do need to confirm compatibility of the Java application's application server version, Java version, and OS version with the APM 10.1 Java agent.

Docker is an open-source project that automates the deployment of applications inside software containers, by providing an additional layer of abstraction and automation of operating-system-level virtualization on Linux.
