For monitoring a Node.js application in a Docker container, use a combination of container-level and application-level monitoring tools. At the container level, Docker stats or tools like cAdvisor can provide insights into resource utilization (CPU, memory, network). For application-level monitoring, integrate an APM (Application Performance Monitoring) tool like New Relic or AppDynamics, which can track application metrics, request times, and error rates. Additionally, consider using logging tools like Winston or Bunyan in your Node.js application to capture logs for performance analysis. This multi-layered approach will give you comprehensive insights into both the container and application performance.
