  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • docker-swarm-autoscaler

    Autoscale Docker Swarm services based on cpu utilization.

    If you want to have some sort of auto scaling, you will need to monitor to some extent though as this will be the signal for scaling up/down. I noticed that already includes the relevant prometheus configs required for just scaling by cpu.
