Sametime monitoring dashboard on Docker

Sametime 12.0.1 introduced a new feature, a monitoring dashboard based on Grafana

But on Docker it was not working, in various panels, for example those related to meetings it showed “no data”. Some of us reported this to HCL and they told that a fix would be provided for FP1.

In fact if you look at the fix list for FP1 here, you will see this: SAME-46471 – Update to support the Meetings Dashboard on Docker.

I found a small issue, though. For me the dashboard does not show correctly the meeting numbers. Even if you have one or more meetings active , it always shows 0

I had a chat with the Sametime Wizard, Tony Payne from HCL, and he suggested me to edit the file docker-compose-monitoring.yml and change from
      image: google/cadvisor:latest



After I did that and restarted the server, the dashboard works perfectly 🙂

If you are interested in Sametime, and I assume you are if you are reading this, I strongly suggest you to attend at Engage the session “Ad08 – Real life challenges and configurations when implementing HCL Sametime” on Tuesday, April 25 at 13:30 – 14:30 done by Erik Schwalb and Herwig Schauer of HCL. I had a meeting with Erik and he showed me a preview of what they will talk about, I can guarantee you that this session is very interesting and useful.
