I’ve configured Docker integration on Grafana Cloud, utilizing Cadvisor and Grafana Agent to monitor Docker containers, and it’s been effective for most metrics. I’ve been referencing the metrics documented: Docker Integration Metrics.
However, I’m encountering challenges when trying to monitor the load average of individual containers. Specifically, the
container_cpu_load_average_10s metric appears in Grafana, but it doesn’t seem to provide any values.
I’m aware that load average is typically a host-level metric, but I’m interested in approximating it for my containers. I came across these discussions related to the issue:
- Issue 3706
- Issue 1656 (github .com/grafana/agent/issues/1656)
Could someone please advise if there have been any recent developments on this topic? Is there a way to pass the load average metric to Grafana Agent for my Docker containers, or can you suggest an approach to approximate it using the existing setup?
I would greatly appreciate any guidance or recommendations on how to achieve this monitoring goal. Thank you!
