We recommend using Docker during development. This gives you a consistent, repeatable development environment.
In Production, we recommend using Kubernetes and container images. This provides you with predictable and consistent configuration, and the ability to manage deployment using automation tools.
Zeebe provides a monitor to inspect workflow instances. The monitor is a standalone web application which connects to a Zeebe broker and consumes all records.
