A docker-compose.yml file is provided. It's aimed to quickly try temboard with a few PostgreSQL servers. Requires docker-compose 1.10+ and docker engine 1.13+.

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dalibo/temboard/master/docker/docker-compose.yml
docker-compose up

After starting the docker-compose image, the UI is available on with admin / admin credentials.

The agents can be accessed with alice / alice or bob / bob.

docker-compose will launch:

  • a PG 9.4 cluster
  • a PG 9.5 cluster
  • a PG 9.6 cluster
  • a temboard agent for each PG cluster
  • a standard PG 9.6 cluster for the UI
  • a container for the UI



temBoard docker images are designed for testing and demo. The SSL certificate is self-signed and the default passwords are public.

temBoard agent is designed to run on same host as PostgreSQL which is incompatible with Docker service-minded architecture. Temboard agent images require access to docker socket to restart PostgreSQL. Which you do not want in production.

If you want to deploy temBoard in a production environment, take some time to read http://temboard.rtd.io.


  • If you're already running a PostgreSQL instance on your machine, you might encounter conflicts with ports 5433, 5434 and 5435. If so remove or edit ports in docker-compose.yml.

  • If you run docker on a distant linux server: build a simple SSH tunnel to reach the temboard server without exposing it on the internet :

ssh -L 8888:localhost:8888 your_server_ip
