Openshift container monitoring in scom


Is there anyone who knows if we can monitor and how we can monitor openshift containers in scom? I think there is a solution in azure, can we use this to monitor our on premise containers?

What is the best solution?


Kind regards,


Hi Luc,

I saw OpenShift provides a rich REST API. You could firstly find the right query to show the information in SquaredUp so that you have visibility and secondly you can create a PowerShell Monitor / Rule which uses “Invoke-RestMethod” to query OpenShift and throw alerts if required.

Hope that helps


Luc, just found that there is a UserVoice entry for Container Monitoring with SCOM.

Please visit and share your thoughts.


The company I am working for is still very traditional :wink:
