About the test

The Docker online test assesses knowledge of the platform virtualization and containerization tool, Docker.

The assessment includes work-sample tasks such as:

  • Using Dockerfiles to create container images.
  • Creating and starting Docker containers using Docker Run.
  • Configuring and running multiple containers with Docker Compose.

A good DevOps engineer or software developer should know how to use Docker to configure containers and images, run services within those containers, and manage the container lifecycle.

Life Cycle

As part of a load balancing scheme, your company uses multiple virtual machines which can provision and deprovision Docker containers as demand changes.

Complete the docker commands (with no additional arguments) that manage the lifecycle of a docker image.

  1. When a virtual machine completes startup, it runs the following command to ready the custom container image:
    docker create --name balanced-container company-image
  2. When the load balancer detects high usage, it signals the virtual machine to make the container available for use. The VM runs the following command:
    docker ____ balanced-container
  3. The load balancer detects that a container has been underutilized for more than 15 minutes. It signals the VM to suspend the container to conserve CPU resources. The VM runs the command:
    docker ____ balanced-container
  4. Finding an increased load again, the load balancer signals the VM to awaken the container. The VM runs the command:
    docker ____ balanced-container
  5. After an hour of underutilization, the load balancer signals the VM to gracefully end all processes in the container to conserve RAM resources. The VM runs the command:
    docker ____ balanced-container

The automation team is testing their background Docker web server containers. They need to cleanly remove the existing containers without leaving any artifacts behind, then start new containers.

# Gracefully end all processes in the containers
host> docker-compose stop
# Remove the containers and their anonymous volumes
host> docker-compose ____ -v
# Start containers in background
host> docker-compose up ____ apache php mysql

Sample candidate report

What others say

Decorative quote

Simple, straight-forward technical testing

TestDome is simple, provides a reasonable (though not extensive) battery of tests to choose from, and doesn't take the candidate an inordinate amount of time. It also simulates working pressure with the time limits.
