Container Scanning

The Inventory Agent, when installed, has the ability to detect Docker images and containers on you network. Application inventory is collected on running containers. This is achieved using Zero-footprint inventory collection.

Image and container discovery
Event based container scanning identifies the status of each container
Performs a one-time Zero-footprint inventory of application(s) on running containers
Collects image ID, repository tags and repository digest information.

Note:By default, the Inventory Agent does not collect any Docker images or containers.

To view Docker images and containers:

1. Go to the Inventory Settings page (Data Collection > IT Assets Inventory Tasks > Inventory Settings).
2. Select the Enable detection of Docker and running inventory agent inside Docker containers check box.

This allows inventory of the host to report the presence of Docker images, and also allows invoking the locally- installed Inventory Agent inside Docker containers when they are running.

Tip:In contrast, if you clear this check box, the Inventory Agent will not detect Docker images and containers installed on the host.
