I was confused about the pull rate limits that Docker recently enforced on Docker Hub. Turns out that it's not complicated at all. In a nutshell:
- Unauthenticated users get 100 pulls in a 6-hour sliding window.
- Authenticated users with a free Docker account get 200 pulls in a 6-hour sliding window.
- Paid users gets no limit.
Will this affects you? Most likely not. 100 pulls in 6 hours amounts to a docker pull every 3.6 minutes.
