Once you've built cloud resources in your MedStack Control environment and have deployed your Docker configuration, the load balancer, and services, you're ready to begin maintaining a functional environment.
Whether you are troubleshooting a service or checking in on its logging activity, it's easy to access the logs for a service or for specific containers in Medstack Control.
Service logs contain the aggregate of all active container logs. They can be accessed by clicking the Logs button in the service containers section of the service details page.
Container logs pertain to both active and destroyed containers in the Docker environment. Approximately every 24 hours, Docker environments in Medstack Control are configured to prune destroyed containers and their logs, or sooner if space is required by the node on which the containers reside.
To view active container logs, click the Logs button for a container in the service containers section of the service details page.
Destroyed container logs are preserved in the Swarm for approximately 24 hours or until additional storage space is required by the node on which the containers are stored.
To view destroyed container logs, click the View button for a container in the tasks / history section of the service details page.
When a container is running, you can open a web terminal in MedStack Control to SSH into the service container, and communicate with resources connected to the service and other services in the Docker network.
To open a web terminal to shell into a container, click the Shell button for a container in the service containers section of the service details page.
You may view the CPU, Memory, and Storage utilization of a node in the Monitoring tab accessible on the navigation bar.
The list of nodes are those running across all your MedStack Control environments.
The static IP address of the node.
The cluster the node belongs to.
In preview: The overall server status.
In preview: The server availability, which is only reported for the manager node.
The status of the node in the Docker environment.
By clicking the IP address of a node, you can view the utilization metrics over time.
To view the metrics over a period of time until now, select the Date range dropdown, then click the Now button to populate the graph.
Utilization metrics for database servers are currently not reported in MedStack Control.
