Attached Volume with Streams or a Custom Config

docker run --rm -d \ 
-p MACHINE_PORT:8011 \
--ulimit nofile=65536:65536 \
-v VOLUME:/timebase-home \
  • VOLUME - PATH to local TimeBase home volume with populated files such as Streams, Configs, etc.
  • MACHINE_PORT - port on your machine that will be used for TimeBase.
  • CONTAINER_NAME - the name of TimeBase container that will be shown in containers list docker ps.
  • VERSION - TimeBase image version (tag), use tag latest for the latest version.

It is strongly recommended defining a specific version instead of the latest.

-p 80:8011 \
--name=timebase-prod \
-ulimit nofile=65536:65536 \
-v /home/master/timebase:/timebase-home \

You can configure selected TimeBase properties in configuration file and place it in /home/master/timebase folder. Mount this folder to use configurations:

-v /home/master/timebase:/timebase-home \  

In you can configure host, port, version, and other TimeBase parameters.
