How to monitor non APM instrumented containers only with sim?

Hi All!

 

I wanted to monitor containers with a sim without the instrumented app.

 

https://docs.appdynamics.com/display/PRO45/Controller+Settings+for+Server+Visibility

https://docs.appdynamics.com/display/PRO45/Monitoring+Containers

I followed the steps above, and I can see in the machine log the docker monitoring is started

[extension-scheduler-pool-0] 29 May 2019 00:27:01,727  INFO NewLinuxCollectorEnvironmentVariableSupplier - Docker is enabled. Metrics will be collected for the physical host machine

However, on the server tab, I don't see any container showing up.

After I realized there is a parameter called sim.docker.monitorAPMContainersOnly which enables the non-intrumented container monitoring.

But I don't find this parameter in the admin page. I can see many other sim.docker.* options but not this one.

 

Could some shed some light on how to monitor non-apm instrumented containers only with sim?
