Checking on docker containers (plugins) on an orchestrator

Summary: This video shows the use of three commands to check on containers being used on an ochestrator.

When should I use this? When there are performance and/or memory issues.

  • sudo docker ps -a - This command shows the running docker containers.
  • sudo docker stats --no-stream - This command shows the memory usage of each docker container. This is useful if you want to identify what is consuming your orchestrator memory.
  • sudo docker stats - This command is the same as above except it is realtime. You should use CTRL-C to exit the output.
