Monitoring & logging for containers with Sematext

In this blog post we discuss how Sematext integrates with IBM Bluemix Container Service to provide monitoring and logging visibility of your containerized applications, as they run in production. In the sections below, we demonstrate how to set up a Kubernetes cluster in Bluemix and how to set up Sematext in this cluster. IBM Cloud has monitoring and logging capabilities in the platform, but we know our customers operate in a multi-cloud or hybrid cloud environment and we are very excited to partner with Sematext, enabling operational consistency across those environments. We worked with Alen Komljen, an Automation Engineer from Sematext, to create the following content and perform the technology validation.
