Runs the Packetbeat agent. Packetbeat is an open source application monitoring and performance management system. It works by sniffing application traffic, parsing the interesting protocols (e.g. HTTP, Thrift-RPC MySQL, PgSQL, REDIS) and correlating them into transactions. It can then tell you which transactions are slow, which transactions have errors and which user actions led to those errors.
If you run this container using
--net=host alongside your other containers it can see the traffic created by them and between them. For example:
docker run --net=host -d packetbeat/packetbeat-agent packetbeat -e -c /etc/packetbeat/packetbeat.conf
