The new Container Status dashboard!
In the recent update of Boatswain (agent version 0.2.11), it keeps track of all the container statuses, no matter running or stopped, and display them on the new Container Status dashboard implemented on the Boatswain.io.
The Container Status Timeline
With the timeline above, we could get a rough idea on the recent lifecycle of any container. There are all together 8 possible statuses:
Please note that Boatswain makes his best effort to collect the container status and may not be able to acknowledge a change if a status duration is too short.
The Container Info
This pane displays the current container status which is equivalent to the
docker ps command.
The Container Status History
This table list out every change in status detected and it is just the textual format representing the timeline graph above. The first row with highlighted background is the current container status.
Check out the latest status of all containers
Other than the new Container Status dashboard, we also added a new pane in the Docker Status dashboard listing the current status of all the containers.
We hope the above new feature could help Docker users getting up-to-date information of their Docker servers but dashboard is a just passive solution which means it is futile if you are not looking at it. Real time notification could fill this gap and that’s our final stage of development before the official launch. Stay tuned and follow us on twitter!
