Docker Hub repository

Plugin: go.d.plugin Module: dockerhub


This collector keeps track of DockerHub repositories statistics such as the number of stars, pulls, current status, and more.

This collector is supported on all platforms.

This collector supports collecting metrics from multiple instances of this integration, including remote instances.

Default Behavior


This integration doesn't support auto-detection.


The default configuration for this integration does not impose any limits on data collection.

Performance Impact

The default configuration for this integration is not expected to impose a significant performance impact on the system.


Metrics grouped by scope.

The scope defines the instance that the metric belongs to. An instance is uniquely identified by a set of labels.

Per Docker Hub repository instance

These metrics refer to the entire monitored application.

This scope has no labels.


dockerhub.pullsa dimension per repositorypulls
dockerhub.pulls_ratea dimension per repositorypulls/s
dockerhub.starsa dimension per repositorystars
dockerhub.statusa dimension per repositorystatus
dockerhub.last_updateda dimension per repositoryseconds


There are no alerts configured by default for this integration.



No action required.



The configuration file name for this integration is go.d/dockerhub.conf.

You can edit the configuration file using the edit-config script from the Netdata config directory.

cd /etc/netdata 2>/dev/null || cd /opt/netdata/etc/netdata
sudo ./edit-config go.d/dockerhub.conf


The following options can be defined globally: update_every, autodetection_retry.

Debug Mode

To troubleshoot issues with the dockerhub collector, run the go.d.plugin with the debug option enabled. The output should give you clues as to why the collector isn't working.

  • Navigate to the plugins.d directory, usually at /usr/libexec/netdata/plugins.d/. If that's not the case on your system, open netdata.conf and look for the plugins setting under [directories].

    cd /usr/libexec/netdata/plugins.d/
  • Switch to the netdata user.

    sudo -u netdata -s
  • Run the go.d.plugin to debug the collector:

    ./go.d.plugin -d -m dockerhub
