Use the Docker CLI to pull this image
Built in Rust, Vector places high-value on performance, correctness, and operator friendliness. It compiles to a single static binary and is designed to be deployed across your entire infrastructure, serving as a light-weight daemon, sidecar, or highly efficient service. Take back ownership and control of your observability data with Vector.
As shown above, you can pass a custom
Vector configuration file via the
-c flag. You'll want
to do this since the
/etc/vector/vector.toml configuration file
doesn't do anything.
How you deploy Vector is largely dependent on your use case and environment. Please see the deployment section for more info on how to deploy Vector.
Simply run with newer version in the tag:
docker pull timberio/vector:X.X.X-alpine && \ docker run timberio/vector:X.X.X-alpine
This image is based on the
alpine Docker image, which is
a Linux distribution built around musl libc and BusyBox. It is considerably
smaller in size than other Docker images and statically links libraries. This
is the image we recommend due to it's small size and reliability.
docker run timberio/vector:0.10.0-alpine
docker run timberio/vector:0.10.0-debian
Distroless is a base docker image based on either stripping down an OS, or building the key parts from scratch. It contains only the barest of essentials for running a static or dynamically linked binary.
distroless-static uses the statically linked musl x86 build distroless-libc uses a dynamically linked build which leverages libc provided by distroless/base/cc
Vector's images are multi-arch and support the x86_64, ARM64, and ARMv7 architectures. Docker handles this transparently for you.
Vector's Docker images can be downloaded with the following tags. Note that Vector maintains special tags that are automatically updated whenever Vector is released:
Vector's Docker source files are located in it's Github repo.
