Install the Docker ULM App and View the Dashboards

Instructions for installing the Sumo Logic App for Docker ULM, and descriptions of the app dashboards.

Install the Sumo Logic App

Now that you have set up collection of Docker logs and metrics, install the Sumo Logic App for Docker ULM to use the pre-configured searches and dashboards.

To install the app

Locate and install the app you need from the App Catalog. If you want to see a preview of the dashboards included with the app before installing, click Preview Dashboards.

  1. From the App Catalog, search for and select the app. 
  2. To install the app, click Add to Library.
    add-docker-ulm.png
    1. App Name. You can retain the existing name, or enter a name of your choice for the app.

    2. Docker Log Source. Select the source category that you configured for the Docker Logs source.

    3. Docker Metrics Source. Select the source category that you configured for the Docker Stats source. 
    4. Advanced. Select the Location in Library (the default is the Personal folder in the library), or click New Folder to add a new folder.
    5. Click Add to Library.

Once an app is installed, it will appear in your Personal folder, or other folder that you specified. From here, you can share it with your organization. See Welcome to the New Library for information on working with the library .

Panels will start to fill automatically. It's important to note that each panel slowly fills with data matching the time range query and received since the panel was created. Results won't immediately be available, but with a bit of time, you'll see full graphs and maps. 

Dashboards

This section describes the dashboards in the Sumo Logic App for Docker ULM.

Docker - Overview

See an overview of Docker activity, including the number of Docker hosts; the number of containers started, paused, stopped, and killed; event information; and the top containers by CPU usage, bytes sent, bytes received, and memory usage over the last 24 hours.

Containers by State. A table that lists, for container events that occurred during the last 24 hours, the time the event occurred, the container image, the container name, and the event type.

Container Events - One Day Time Comparison. A table that compares the count of a particular event (such as pause, stop, die, restart, start, kill, unpause, and so on) for a image/container combination over the time range (24 hours by default), compared with 24 hours previous to the time range. 

Top 5 Containers by CPU Usage. A line chart that shows the CPU usage by the five containers that have used the most CPU over the last 24 hours. 

Top 5 Containers by Tx Bytes. A line chart that shows the bytes transmitted by top five containers that have transmitted the most bytes  over the last 24 hours.

Top 5 Containers by Memory Usage. A line chart that shows the memory usage by the top five containers that used the most memory over the last 24 hours. 

Docker - Block IO

See the number of block I/O requests serviced by each container, and the number of bytes transferred to and from disk by each container over the last three hours.
