How to use the Docker images

Start a standalone container with H2 storage

docker run --name oap --restart always -d apache/skywalking-oap-server:9.0.0

Start a standalone container with ElasticSearch 7 as storage whose address is elasticsearch:9200

docker run --name oap --restart always -d -e SW_STORAGE=elasticsearch -e SW_STORAGE_ES_CLUSTER_NODES=elasticsearch:9200 apache/skywalking-oap-server:9.0.0


We could set up environment variables to configure this image. They are defined in backend-setup.

Extend image

If you intend to override or add config files in /skywalking/config, /skywalking/ext-config is the location for you to put extra files. The files with the same name will be overridden; otherwise, they will be added to /skywalking/config.

If you want to add more libs/jars into the classpath of OAP, for example, new metrics for OAL. These jars can be mounted into /skywalking/ext-libs, then entrypoint bash will append them into the classpath. Notice, you can’t override an existing jar in classpath.
