The DevOps 2.2 Toolkit

By: Viktor Farcic

Overview of this book

Building on The DevOps 2.0 Toolkit and The DevOps 2.1 Toolkit: Docker Swarm, Viktor Farcic brings his latest exploration of the Docker technology as he records his journey to explore two new programs, self-adaptive and self-healing systems within Docker. The DevOps 2.2 Toolkit: Self-Sufficient Docker Clusters is the latest book in Viktor Farcic’s series that helps you build a full DevOps Toolkit. This book in the series looks at Docker, the tool designed to make it easier in the creation and running of applications using containers. In this latest entry, Viktor combines theory with a hands-on approach to guide you through the process of creating self-adaptive and self-healing systems. Within this book, Viktor will cover a wide-range of emerging topics, including what exactly self-adaptive and self-healing systems are, how to choose a solution for metrics storage and query, the creation of cluster-wide alerts and what a successful self-sufficient system blueprint looks like. Work with Viktor and dive into the creation of self-adaptive and self-healing systems within Docker.

Deploying Prometheus stack

We'll start by cloning vfarcic/docker-flow-monitor repository from It contains all the scripts and Docker stacks we'll use throughout this chapter.

All the commands from this chapter are available in the Gist at
git clone \

cd docker-flow-monitor
The rest of the chapter will require Docker machine. Please set it up using the installation instructions at ( If you are a Windows user, please run all the commands from Git Bash (installed through Git) or any other bash you might have.

Before we create a Prometheus service, we need to have a cluster. It will consist of three nodes created with Docker machine...
