Docker Cloud Agent: System Containers

Question

Why do I see running containers from images starting withdockercloud/ on my node after installing the Docker Cloud Agent?

Answer

Once you install the Docker Cloud Agent, you can still use the docker command as you would otherwise. For example, running docker ps will show you a list of containers running. Please note that there will be containers running from images starting with dockercloud/ which you may not recognize. These are system containers that Docker Cloud provisions as part of providing it's services.
