The SGCI serves the science gateway community.

We provide NSF-funded, online and in-person resources and services. Our goal is to facilitate—at little or no cost—the sharing of experiences, technologies, and practices of those working with science gateways. Read success stories about how we've supported gateway development and our community of gateway creators, users, and students.
Join the Gateways Community Forum! We've created a discussion forum open to all members of the gateway community. We welcome questions, event listings, and other community-relevant topics.

What is a Gateway? What is a Gateway?

Science gateways allow science & engineering communities to access shared data, software, computing services, instruments, educational materials, and other resources specific to their disciplines. Read more on Wikipedia.

Collecting Docker metrics with Python and Prometheus

Prometheus is an open source tool for collecting and displaying metrics and stats. It can be used to collect metrics such as memory usage in Docker containers as well as many other metrics that might help with managing operations or obtaining funding. Using a basic Python API, you can collect metrics in Prometheus for applications running in Docker.

Video and slides from previous webinars are available in our webinar archive.
