Docker Zabbix Sender Documentation

Leverage Docker stats live streams to push containers statistics to Zabbix.

Docker Zabbix Sender is available as a Docker container itself. It is also delivered as a Python module to install it manually on a server.


Docker Zabbix Sender requires Docker 1.5 or higher. It leverages the new stats API call available in Docker Remote API version 17 to get live streams of containers statistics.

How to use the Docker container?

docker run                                          \
    -e ZABBIX_HOST=<HOST_FQDN>                      \
    -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock    \
