Hi@akhtar,

By default, docker will not allow you to monitor its metrics. For that you have to configure your docker. You can use the below code to configure your docker engine.

  • Go to your /etc/docker folder and create one file named daemon.json. Inside this file write down these below lines.
{
  "metrics-addr" : "0.0.0.0:9323",
  "experimental" : true
}
  • After that restart your docker engine.
$ systemctl restart docker.
  • Now you can browse your docker metrics.
$ localhost:9323/metrics

Hope this is helpful.
