Monitoring Containers

Importing the dashboards

grafana-pcp includes the following (optional) dashboards:

  • PCP Vector: Container Overview (CGroups v1)

  • PCP Vector: Container Overview (CGroups v2)

You can import the corresponding dashboard on the PCP Vector data source settings page.


grafana-pcp before version 3.0.0 includes a single dashboard called PCP Vector: Container Overview which supports CGroups v1 only and is installed by default (i.e. no import is required).


You can choose one or multiple containers in the container drop-down field at the top of the dashboard:


Common Problems

My container doesn’t show up

  • make sure that the docker and/or podman PMDAs are installed

  • currently PCP only supports containers started by the root user (there is an open feature request to change this)
