OK guys, since the ELK is quite popular on docker-hub, I was wondering if I could push it one notch further. Turns out I could, please welcome qnib/monster... git (master) $ git clone https://github.com/ChristianKniep/docker-monster.git git (master) $ cd docker-monster docker-monster (master) $ docker-compose up -d Creating dockermonster_monster_1... docker-monster (master) $ This bugger includes a complete stack. It includes: Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana (ELK) Workbench to parse, store and visualise logs Carbon + graphite-api + grafana Framework to store, access and visualise metrics StatsD Metrics proxy to aggregate and buffer metrics, which do not fit into fire&forget diamond, watchpsutil tools fetching metrics of the system. All you have to do is fetch the repository and fire up docker-compose, like I did above. Alternatively you could build the Image locally and tinker around with it, it builds upon my qnib/logstash(:trunk) image which provides a basic installation of logstash. I am aware that this is the total opposite of microservices, since I cramp the complete stack in one single container. :) But - you know - because we can.
