Troubleshooting: Docker Hub Rate Limits
Docker Hub has limits on the amount of pulls unauthenticated users can do. This typically manifests itself with failing builds due to the following error:
toomanyrequests: You have reached your pull rate limit. You may increase the limit by authenticating and upgrading: [https://www.docker.com/increase-rate-limit](https://www.docker.com/increase-rate-limit)
There are two solutions to this problem.
- Use AWS Elastic Container Registry (ECR) public images instead of using the Docker Hub. ECR supports unlimited free pulls from AWS resources
- Flightcontrol works with your Docker Hub account, if you have one. Use the
DOCKER_PASSWORDenvironment variables in your configuration and Flightcontrol will authenticate the pull request for you. This should alleviate the rate limits issue.
