  The Dark Art of Container Monitoring
  presented by Gianluca Borello, Sr. Engineer, sysdig cloud

  Containers are revolutionizing the way we deploy and maintain our
  infrastructures, but monitoring and troubleshooting in a containerized
  environment can still be painful and impractical.  Understanding
  even basic resource usage is difficult - let alone tracking network
  connections or malicious activity.  This talk will cover the current
  state of the art for container monitoring and visibility, including
  pros / cons and live demonstrations of each method.  Special emphasis will
  be put on sysdig, an open source troubleshooting tool the presenter
  has helped develop.  Sysdig offers unprecedented container visibility
  without the need to break the 'sanctity' of the container.

About Sysdig:
  Sysdig is the container visibility company, dedicated to making
  containers viable and mainstream by offering production-quality
  visibility into containerized applications, without sacrificing any
  of the benefits that make containers great.  Sysdig is creating a new
  generation of 'container-native' performance management solutions,
  designed specifically to deliver monitoring in a microservices-friendly
  architecture.  Founded in 2013 by Loris Degioanni, the company's open
  source sysdig technology has attracted a community of hundreds of
  thousands of developers, administrators and other IT professionals
  looking for deep visibility into systems and containers.

  Sysdig's commercial product, Sysdig Cloud, is the first and only
  comprehensive, container-native monitoring, alerting and troubleshooting
