With the spread of smart devices, the use of big data, and the proliferation of the Internet of Things, virtualization technology for cloud servers have become important worldwide. Also, research has been conducted to efficiently manage the resources of hosts in VMs. Container-based virtualization has less performance degradation than VMs because there is no emulation for the operating system. Using the Docker API is slow to measure. In this paper, we implement the resource measurement module of Job nodes and design middleware that supports auto-scaling in auto-scaling module and Docker-based multi-host environment.
