Configure APM Server on Dockeredit
The Docker image provides several methods for configuring APM Server. The conventional approach is to provide a configuration file via a bind-mounted volume, but it’s also possible to create a custom image with your configuration included.
One way to configure APM Server on Docker is to provide
apm-server.yml via bind-mounting.
docker run, the bind-mount can be specified like this:
docker run \ -v ~/apm-server.yml:/usr/share/apm-server/apm-server.yml \ docker.elastic.co/apm/apm-server:6.3.0
Custom image configurationedit
It’s possible to embed your APM Server configuration in a custom image. Here is an example Dockerfile to achieve this:
FROM docker.elastic.co/apm/apm-server:6.3.0 COPY apm-server.yml /usr/share/apm-server/apm-server.yml USER root RUN chown apm-server /usr/share/apm-server/apm-server.yml USER apm-server
