Docker Volumes Contd..

  • Generally for stateful application containers, its a good idea to create a VOLUME as part of Dockerfile.
  • Experiment:
    • Create a volume for mysql data and mount that into mysql container
    • insert some data into it
    • delete the container
    • Create a new mysql container and reuse the same volume and verify if the data is present or not.
    • To interact with mysql container Refer Here
    • To create the container we have used docker container run --name mysql-primary -d -P --mount "source=mysql-employee-vol,target=/var/lib/mysql" -e "MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=rootroot" -e "MYSQL_USER=qtdevops" -e "MYSQL_PASSWORD=qtdevops" -e "MYSQL_DATABASE=employee" mysql
    • To login into mysql prompt docker container exec -it mysql-primary mysql -u root -p
    • To create a table
      use employee;
      CREATE TABLE authors (id INT, name VARCHAR(20), email VARCHAR(20));
      INSERT INTO authors (id,name,email) VALUES(1,"Vivek","");
      INSERT INTO authors (id,name,email) VALUES(2,"Priya","");
      INSERT INTO authors (id,name,email) VALUES(3,"Tom","");
      select * from authors;
  • Tmpfs mount: This gets mounted to the RAM/memory into container. This is useful only for applications which require preset data to be present in memory


  • Every container is getting an ip address
  • Docker has a subcommand for network
  • lets see what are the networks available
  • Two possible Networing options identified
  • Share the same network of docker host to the container
  • Create a new network on the docker host and make it available to the containers. Connect the network created by docker host to the network docker host is connected by using a bridge
  • Experiment:

    • Created a linux vm and verified network interfaces. we had two interfaces
      • loopback (lo) =>
      • eth0
    • We had installed docker on the linux machine and one more interface got created
      • docker0
    • Now we have create a docker container and verified the network interfaces we got two interfaces
      • loopback (lo)
      • eth0
