Starting ARTEMIS

You can start ARTEMIS as a multi-container application by running:

docker-compose up -d
or if you want additional services:
docker-compose -f docker-compose.yaml -f docker-compose.<extra_service>.yaml -f ... up -d
-d means running in detached mode (as a daemon; recommended mode).

RECOMMENDATION: After starting ARTEMIS, always check the logs by running:

docker-compose logs
docker-compose -f ... logs
The addition of a -f flag after the logs keyword will provide you running logs. Checking them is important to see if something went wrong. Consult also ARTEMIS-logging. If everything went ok you will see an output as follows (may differ if you open up the UI in parallel):

Extra services that you can use with ARTEMIS are:

  • exabgp: local exaBGP monitor
  • grafana: visual interfaces/dashboards; please check this docs page

Stopping and exiting ARTEMIS

Note that to gracefully terminate ARTEMIS and all its services you can use the following command:

docker-compose -f docker-compose.yaml -f docker-compose.<extra_service>.yaml stop
If you want to remove the containers as well: (warning: whatever file/directory is not properly mapped to a persistent local file/directory will be erased after container tear-down):
docker-compose -f docker-compose.yaml -f docker-compose.<extra_service>.yaml down
In case you do not use any extra services during composition, you can simply use:
docker-compose stop
docker-compose down

Per-service CLI controls

You can also access ARTEMIS microservices (if required) via CLI, by executing the following command:

docker-compose exec <microservice> bash
This will provide you access to the bash entrypoint (assuming it is provided) of the microservice container.

To control microservices separately:

docker-compose start|stop|restart <microservice>
