This package makes it possible to monitor state of running docker containers using SNMP. It consists of two programs:

  • tallyman - health state collector to be run inside the container
  • stevedore - container state collector and SNMP agent daemon

Each container is supposed to run the tallyman command as part of its HEALTHCHECK configuration. This tool takes as its argument the command line that does the actual checking, collects its return and sends it over to the stevedore daemon that acts as a collector.

The purpose of stevedore is two-fold. First, it provides a RESTful service that collects health check reports from multiple containers, and secondly it acts as SNMP subagent, delivering the collected information to the snmpd daemon.
