Docker images of the siridb-server are available on GitHub.

Supported tags: (Minimal SiriDB image based on Alpine Linux.) (Latest SiriDB build from the master branch using a minimal Alpine Linux base image)

Getting started

The basic steps required to run the SiriDB server in Docker are explained below.


To get started, run the following command in your terminal:

$ docker pull

Note: Depending on how you’ve installed docker on your system, you might see a permission denied error after running the above command. If you’re on Linux, you may need to prefix your docker commands with sudo. Alternatively you can create a Docker group to get rid of this issue.

The pull command fetches the latest siridb-server image from the GitHub Container Registry and saves it in your system.


Great! Let’s now run a Docker container based on this image. To do that you are going to use the docker run command.

$ docker run --name siridb -d -p 9000:9000 -v ~/siridb-data:/var/lib/siridb

You’ll notice a few flags being used. Here’s some more info on them:

  • -d - Run the container in detached mode (in the background).
  • -p 9000:9000 - Map port 9000 of the host to port 9000 (SiriDB port for client socket connections) in the container.
  • -v ~/siridb-data:/var/lib/siridb - Mount a volume for SiriDB data. (For data persistence)
  • - The image to use.

To verify that the container is running, you can use the docker ps command.

$ docker ps

This command shows you all containers that are currently running and should display a similar output as this:

CONTAINER ID   IMAGE                          COMMAND                  CREATED         STATUS         PORTS                                                                     NAMES

To stop the active SiriDB container, run the docker stop command.

$ docker stop siridb
