Docker image for Packetbeat setup

Packetbeat is an open source application monitoring and
performance management (APM) system. See for details.

This runs all necessary steps to have the Packetbeat stack (without the agent) on your host
(Based on Get Started) .

How to use

To build:

 $ docker build -t packetbeat-setup .

To run:

 $ docker run -it --rm -v /var/run/docker.sock:/docker.sock -v /usr/local/bin:/scripts packetbeat-setup

To stop, start, restart, rm, pause, unpause, log, logf:

$ packetbeat stop # or any of those listed above

From docker hub

$ docker pull boymaas/packetbeat-setup
$ docker run -it --rm -v /var/run/docker.sock:/docker.sock -v /usr/local/bin:/scripts boymaas/packetbeat-setup

The -v /var/run/docker.sock:/docker.sock makes it possible to build images and run containers of your host
inside this docker image. The -v /usr/local/bin:/scripts copies packetbeat script that facilitates stop, start, restart, etc.


You still need to configure and execute packetbeat-agent. Read this.
