New Relic Servers for Linux includes integrated Docker monitoring features, which provide detailed insight into your running Docker containers and images. These features allow you to view connections between apps and containers, as well as between containers and servers. For installation instructions, see Enabling Servers for Docker.

Viewing docker metrics in APM
Docker metrics are integrated into the APM Overview page for individual applications. Each row displays performance metrics specific to that container. If Servers for Linux is installed on the target server, Docker containers are labeled with a container icon and rolled up by their host server.
Viewing Docker metrics in Servers
For detailed analysis of your Docker container's impact on your server, use the Docker page at Servers > (selected server) > Docker:
- Sort the list of images by CPU or Memory usage with the Sort By dropdown.
- View summary metrics for each image, including number of containers per image, by selecting View as table.
- Select an individual image name to drill down to charts and metrics for only that image.
Servers aggregates Docker data for all Docker images of the same type. Data is not available at the Docker container level.
Exploring related Docker servers
The Server Overview page lists other apps running on the same server. For Docker users, this includes apps running inside a Docker container on the selected server. A container icon indicates apps running inside a Docker container.
