Docker Swarm Traefik state analysis

Recently I've been working on a toolset (see github swarm-traefik-state-analyzer) intended to aid in the health analysis of Docker Swarm services that are proxied by Traefik in an Docker swarm footprint architecture I previously described in a previous post (click here to read). In short you have 1-N docker swarm clusters, each segmented into 1-2 … Continue reading Docker Swarm Traefik state analysis

Similar to "service discovery", I'll just use the term "peer discovery" for this use-case.
