      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.
