Monitoring Linux Containers (LXC)
The Linux Containers (LXC) sensor is automatically deployed and installed after you install the Instana agent.
Instana agent is capable of monitoring privileged containers only.
To view the metrics, select Infrastructure in the sidebar of the Instana User interface, click a specific monitored host, and then you can see a host dashboard with all the collected metrics and monitored processes.
