Elasticsearch on Alpine Linux
Full Description

Elasticsearch on Alpine Linux Docker Image

This image provides Elasticsearch based on Alpine Linux latest stable
version. All files are adapted from the official Elasticsearch docker

Supported tags and respective Dockerfile links


For image 5.6.7 or newer, vm.max_map_count must set to
262144 on the host that run this image.

$ sudo sysctl -w vm.max_map_count=262144

How to use this image

You can run the default elasticsearch command simply:

$ docker run -d bashell/alpine-elasticsearch

You can also pass in additional flags to elasticsearch:

$ docker run -d bashell/alpine-elasticsearch \

This image comes with a default set of configuration files for elasticsearch,
but if you want to provide your own set of configuration files, you can do so
via a volume mounted at /opt/elasticsearch/config:

$ docker run -d \
  -v "$PWD/config":/opt/elasticsearch/config \

This image is configured with a volume at /opt/elasticsearch/data to hold the
persisted index data. Use that path if you would like to keep the data in a
mounted volume:

$ docker run -d \
  -v "$PWD/esdata":/opt/elasticsearch/data \

This image includes EXPOSE 9200 9300
(default http port),
so standard container linking will make it automatically available to the
linked containers.
