#3483 closed defect (fixed)

New Docker Hub pull limits will likely negatively impact CircleCI jobs

Launchpad Bug:


Docker Inc. is introducing limits on unauthenticated image pulls from Docker Hub - https://docs.docker.com/docker-hub/download-rate-limit/

Our CircleCI configuration uses Docker images for most jobs. CircleCI pulls these images from Docker Hub, unauthenticated. The result is that our jobs will share the unauthenticated pull limits with all other CircleCI users and no doubt rapidly be denied service, causing jobs failures.

As evidence, I now see this log output on our CircleCI jobs in the "Spin up environment" step:

Warning: No authentication provided, this pull may be subject to Docker Hub download rate limits.
