Hi all !
I’m running netdata as a docker container. The goal is to monitor containers only, but without monitoring the whole host at the same time. Alternatively, I don’t mind monitoring the host, as long as I don’t receive data from docker containers I’m not interested in.
For example I would like to have multiple netdata containers running at different ports, each one monitoring one or more specific containers ONLY.
Is something like this achievable with netdata?
To monitor containers only, disable all plugins except
enable running new plugins = no
proc = no
ebpf = no
cgroups = yes
apps = no
python.d = no
go.d = no
diskspace = no
timex = no
nfacct = no
slabinfo = no
perf = no
fping = no
ioping = no
cups = no
tc = no
freeipmi = no
charts.d = no
node.d = no
checks = no
idlejitter = no
To filter out cgroups use the following option
enable by default cgroups matching = !*/init.scope !/system.slice/run-*.scope *.scope /machine.slice/*.service /kubepods/pod*/* /kubepods/*/pod*/* !/kubepods* !*/vcpu* !*/emulator !*.mount !*.partition !*.service !*.socket !*.slice !*.swap !*.user !/ !/docker !/libvirt !/lxc !/lxc/*/* !/lxc.monitor* !/lxc.pivot !/lxc.payload !/machine !/qemu !/system !/systemd !/user *
or enable/disable a particular group
enable cgroup dev-hugepages.mount = no

That helpful link worked for me. Thank you!
