Meet the new container-agent mascot and more

Mackerel Team CRE Miura (id:missasan) here.

To celebrate the recent release of our container-agent, we’ve created a new Mackerel character! As with our existing character agent-si, this new character will appear on service sites, stickers, t-shirts, and other novelty items.

Now on to this week’s update information.

Meet the new container-agent mascot

You’re probably already familiar with Mackerel’s character agent-si. He’s the characterization of mackerel-agent which you install when getting server metrics with Mackerel.

In February 2019, we released mackerel-container-agent, an agent dedicated for container monitoring. To celebrate, we also released a new character, container-agent-si!

Expect to see the container-agent-si on service sites and novelty items like these stickers. We’ll be passing them out at events!

New stickers! container-agent-si fits right in with agent-si.

container-agent-si was designed by Mackerel team designers id:takuwolog and id:mazco.

container-agent-si is the new mascot of mackerel-container-agent and a sibling to agent-si. As such, you can see some similarities between the two such as their antennae. We used a physical container as a motif for the design, and the sticker’s illustration depicts container-agent-si as if it could transport and put things into a container. Hopefully one of these novelty items will find their way into your hands soon enough!
