HI team, Docker Concept with APPMON setup??

Currently we are supporting application using dynatrace appmon.
customer has come up with new requirement .
As per their requirement ,they have dockers(on which application to be monitored is available) on linux platform.

In dockers IBM JVM's are running by using Liberty application server.
we are asked to deploy dynatrace appmon agent on docker.
As per our knowledge it is not possible.
Please advice ,if it is possible to deploy appmon agent on docker.If so How to deploy?

One thing to add: You can install the AppMon Agent into each container, or use a sidecar approach and share an agent installation. But as Patrick said, once you get an agent accessible to the container processes, just find the Java command line and add -agentpath as usual.

The way of instrumenting a dockerized JVM with AppMon is the same as for a non dockerized JVM.

Make sure the agent is available in the container and load it with -agentpath as usual.
