Container Map


Like Host Maps, Containers Maps give you a big picture of the health of your containers. Datadog integrates with ECS, Docker, Kubernetes, and more. You can see all of your containers together on one screen with customized groupings and filters, as well as metrics made instantly comprehensible through color and shape.

In one place, you can detect outliers, identify usage patterns, avoid resource problems, and make decisions about how to best manage your containers. It doesn’t matter if you have 10, 100, or 10,000 containers. Autodiscovery automatically detects new containers and accounts for them.
