      What is Ctop?

      Top-like interface for container metrics. Ctop provides a concise and condensed overview of real-time metrics for multiple containers, as well as an expanded view for inspecting a specific container.

      What is Docker Compose?

      With Compose, you define a multi-container application in a single file, then spin your application up in a single command which does everything that needs to be done to get it running.

      What is Kubernetes?

      Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.

        What are some alternatives to Ctop, Docker Compose, and Kubernetes?
        Helm
        Helm is the best way to find, share, and use software built for Kubernetes.
        Spring Cloud
        It provides tools for developers to quickly build some of the common patterns in distributed systems.
        Rancher
        Rancher is an open source container management platform that includes full distributions of Kubernetes, Apache Mesos and Docker Swarm, and makes it simple to operate container clusters on any cloud or infrastructure platform.
        Docker Swarm
        Swarm serves the standard Docker API, so any tool which already communicates with a Docker daemon can use Swarm to transparently scale to multiple hosts: Dokku, Compose, Krane, Deis, DockerUI, Shipyard, Drone, Jenkins... and, of course, the Docker client itself.
        Docker Machine
        Machine lets you create Docker hosts on your computer, on cloud providers, and inside your own data center. It creates servers, installs Docker on them, then configures the Docker client to talk to them.
