What are the rate limits for pulling Docker images from the Docker Hub Registry?
The highest entitlement a user has, based on their personal account and any orgs they belong to, will be used. Unauthenticated pull requests are “anonymous” and will be rate limited based on IP address rather than user ID. For more information on authenticating image pulls, please see this docs page.
Are there rate limits on Docker Hub container image requests?
How is a pull request defined for purposes of rate limiting?
This accounts for the fact that container pull requests for multi-arch images require a manifest list to be downloaded followed by the actual image manifest for the required architecture. HEAD requests are not counted.
Note that all pull requests, including ones for images you already have, are counted by this method. This is the trade-off for not counting individual layers.
Can I use a Docker Pro or Team subscription to run a service account that makes unlimited container pull requests to Docker Hub on behalf of an organization?
Can I run a local mirror of Docker Hub?
Are image layers counted?
Are anonymous (unauthenticated) pulls rate-limited based on IP address?
Are pulls from logged-in accounts rate-limited based on IP address?
Will I be rate-limited if I’m logged in but someone else on my IP hits the anonymous limit?
Does it matter what image I am pulling?
How will these limits be adjusted?
What about CI systems where pulls will be anonymous?
Will Docker offer dedicated plans for open source projects?
