Short Description
Alpine Linux based toolbox on CoreOS with various admin tools
Full Description


A small Alpine Linux based toolbox for Docker on CoreOS

This toolbox includes general networking and admin tools, nano and vim text editors, rsync and Obnam for backup, git and many tools geared towards performance metric gathering and debugging: Some of these tools include generic ones like htop, dstat, atop; more specific tools like iostat, iotop, pidstat and mpstat; network oriented tools like tcpdump, iftop, iperf and the iproute2 tools; and strace/ltrace for tracing. These are added to the tiny base install of Alpine, keeping the whole image as small as possible.

  • the image weighs in at below 100 MB
