We provide a docker-compose.yml file to quickly try temBoard with a few PostgreSQL instances. You’ll need docker compose 1.10+ and docker engine 1.10+.

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

docker compose will launch:

  • a PostgreSQL instance for temboard owns data
  • the temBoard UI
  • four PostgreSQL instances exposed on ports 5432, 5433, 5434 and 5435.
  • a temBoard agent for each instance exposed on port 2345, 2346, 2347, 2348.

temBoard UI is available on with admin / admin credentials. You can access PostgreSQL instance with user and password postgres. For example with pgbench:

$ export PGHOST= PGPORT=5432 PGUSER=postgres PGPASSWORD=postgres
$ psql -c 'CREATE EXTENSION IF NOT EXISTS pg_stat_statements'
$ createdb pgbench
$ pgbench -i pgbench
$ pgbench -c 8 -T 60 pgbench



temBoard docker images are designed for testing and demo.

  • The SSL certificate is self-signed.
  • Default passwords are dumb and public.
  • temBoard agent is designed to run on same host as PostgreSQL which is incompatible with Docker service-minded architecture.
  • temBoard agent image requires access to docker socket to restart PostgreSQL, which you do not want in production.

To deploy temBoard in a production environment, follow installation documentation.
