Note: "docker pull" both fetches and unpacks a container image in one step.

Running container

Run the container.

#  docker run \
--restart=unless-stopped \
-v=/:/rootfs:ro \
-v=/var/run:/var/run:rw \
-v=/sys:/sys:ro \
-v=/var/lib/docker/:/var/lib/docker:ro \
-p=8080:8080 \
--detach=true \
--name=cadvisor \

Note: use "--restart=unless-stopped" or "--restart=always" so container starts after system reboot.
