Portainer - Management UI for Docker


Portainer is an Open Source Management UI which gives you access to a central overview of your Docker host or Swarm cluster. From the dashboard, you can easily access any manageable entity.

It includes following sections

  • Container List  - The containers section provides a view of all available containers. You can see details about the containers (state, image, exposed ports...), filter or sort the containers and manage them using standard actions (start, run, remove...)
  • Image Details  - Access a lot more information in the image details section from the size of the image to the related Dockerfile information
  • Networks - The networks section provides a view of all available networks. Easily manage your networks from a centralized view or quickly create new networks.
  • Volumes - As for the networks, you can easily manage the available volumes from this section and create more volumes


It runs as a container so it’s as simple as running single following command

docker run -d -p 9000:9000 -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock portainer/portainer

docker ps | grep portainer

Once you set the password you it will ask you to login

You can manage local as well as remote docker instances from single portainer setup. I am demonstrating my local instance

Once you click Connect – Wallah it displays the Dashboard
It displays following information

  • Name
  • Docker Version
