Microservice is an application architecture that separates one big application into smaller ones. The architecture simplifies development, deployment, and management process. However, the architecture is quite complex thus the monitoring process becomes much more challenging. Classifications for the instrumentations that are used in the monitoring process is needed to achieve better practicality for the administrators. We surveyed the monitoring technique classification method in microservice architecture. The method is divided into three levels. They are host level, platform level, and service level. In this paper, we present the latest instruments that are being used in the monitoring process in each level. Correlation between the goals, needs, and stakeholder is also presented.
