Shipyard Walkthrough

This is an overview of Shipyard.



The containers section provides a single view of all containers in the Swarm cluster. You can see details about the containers such as what image is being used, container status, when it was created and more. There is also a quick access menu for container operations such as start, stop, restart and destroy.

Container Details

Details such as name, created date, status, hostname, ports, links, container processes etc are shown on the container details view. You can also do operations such as start, stop, restart, view logs, etc.

Container Logs

One of the most important things you can see about a container are its logs. You can quickly see container output for a container in Shipyard.

Container Stats

Using the Docker container stats API Shipyard, enables viewing realtime container stats for CPU, Memory and Networking.



The console feature enables you to Docker exec into a container. This can be any application that is installed in the container and will allow you to troubleshoot the system, view logs, etc.



Shipyard enables you to see what images and tags exist across the cluster. This enables you to quickly see what versions of what images are deployed to the Swarm nodes.


You can see all Swarm nodes and their IP / hostnames from the nodes view.


Shipyard can manage private Docker Registries. You can add multiple registry endpoints and view and manage repositories in each. You can also see layer information such as size and creation date.


Shipyard provides authentication and access control. You can create and manage user accounts as well as access levels such as read-only or write level access to containers, images, registries, etc. Shipyard can also authenticate against LDAP to integrate with your existing authentication system such as OpenLDAP or Active Directory.


You can track all operations in Shipyard using Events. These report operations such as user logins, account management, container operations and more.
