Windows Containers Issues

This page describes known and open issues for Containerized Windows Applications Monitoring.

Common issues

Containerized Windows Applications Monitoring requires Datadog Agent 7.19+.

The supported OS versions are Windows Server 2019 (LTSC) and version 1909 (SAC).

Hyper-V isolation mode is not supported.

Host metrics for disk, IO, and network are disabled. They are not supported by Windows Server, hence the Agent Checks are disabled by default.

Docker issues

Live processes do not appear in containers (except for the Datadog Agent).

Kubernetes issues

Live processes do not appear in containers (except for the Datadog Agent).

HostPort is not supported on Kubernetes. Therefore, APM only works when pod-to-pod networking is configured between the tracer and the Agent. DogStatsD only works when pod-to-pod networking is configured between the DogStatsD client library and the Agent. Refer to the Microsoft Kubernetes HostPort documentation for more information.

Some Kubelet metrics are not available on GKE. They are available on EKS/AKS starting in Datadog Agent v7.19.2. Note: Kubelet checks take between 8 and 10 seconds to run.
