Docker Standalone

Once you have successfully installed SigNoz on Docker Standalone, the following sections provide an overview of the activities that are required to successfully operate SigNoz.

Stop/Start SigNoz Cluster

To stop SigNoz cluster:

docker-compose -f docker/clickhouse-setup/docker-compose.yaml stop

To start/resume SigNoz cluster:

docker-compose -f docker/clickhouse-setup/docker-compose.yaml up -d

*Note: The stopped SigNoz cluster should resume and mount to the existing docker volumes.

Upgrade SigNoz Cluster

Use the commands below to sync to the latest release.

  1. Checkout to main branch:
git checkout main
  1. Pull the latest changes from the SigNoz GitHub repository:
git pull origin main
  1. Go to deploy folder and run the script:
cd deploy && ./

In case you wish to upgrade the SigNoz cluster to a specific version, let's say v0.6.2, follow the steps below:

  1. Checkout to the v0.6.2 tag:
git checkout v0.6.2
  1. Go to deploy folder and run the script:
cd deploy && ./
  • Be careful with breaking changes across versions!
  • There might be misconfiguration caused by version mismatch.

Uninstall SigNoz Cluster

Enter the following command to uninstall SigNoz:

docker-compose -f docker/clickhouse-setup/docker-compose.yaml down -v

Remove the Sample Application from SigNoz Dashboard

Follow the steps in this section to remove the sample application that comes installed with SigNoz:

  1. From the directory in which you installed SigNoz, open Docker Compose file deploy/docker/clickhouse-setup/docker-compose.yaml in a plain-text editor.

  2. Comment out or remove the services.hotrod and services.load-hotrod sections:

    Remove the sample application on Docker Standalone

  3. Move into the deploy directory and run the script again:

cd deploy && ./

Note: If you still see the HotROD services on the dashboard, just wait for a few minutes and the changes will reflect.
