Overview

Deploy this integration to ship metrics from your Docker network using containerized Telegraf agent.

Setup

Pull the Docker image
docker pull logzio/docker-metrics-collector:latest
Start the collector

Run the following command:

docker run --name telegraf-docker-collector-metrics \
 --env METRICS_TOKEN="<<PROMETHEUS-METRICS-SHIPPING-TOKENN>>" \
 --env LOGZIO_LISTENER="<<LISTENER-HOST>>" \
 -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
 logzio/docker-metrics-collector:latest

Replace the placeholders to match your specifics. (They are indicated by the double angle brackets << >>):

  • Replace <<PROMETHEUS-METRICS-SHIPPING-TOKEN>> with a token for the Metrics account you want to ship to.
    Here’s how to look up your Metrics token.
  • Replace <<LISTENER-HOST>> with the Logz.io Listener URL for your region, configured to use port 8052 for http traffic, or port 8053 for https traffic. For example, listener.logz.io if your account is hosted on AWS US East, or listener-nl.logz.io if hosted on Azure West Europe.

If you prefer to keep these environment variables in an .env file, run the following command:

docker run -d --env-file=docker.env -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock logzio/docker-metrics-collector:latest

Check Logz.io metrics
