19:10-19:55 - Monitor your containers with the Elastic Stack - Philipp Krenn 

Containers are quickly gaining popularity as the preferred tool for deploying and running services. While being easier to deploy and isolate, containerized applications are creating new challenges for the logging and monitoring systems.

This talk will look into the details about how the Elastic Stack, and in particular Beats — lightweight shippers — are gathering data from containers.

We will cover fetching logs from containers, collecting different measurements from cgroups, collecting metrics using the Docker API, enhancing the data with the metadata of the containers, monitoring the network traffic exchanged between containers, and collecting metrics from the underlying host
