lscr.io/linuxserver/smokeping:latestshould retrieve the correct image for your arch, but you can also pull specific arch images via tags.
The architectures supported by this image are:
- Once running the URL will be
http://<host-ip>/smokeping/smokeping.cgi. For example a full URL might look like
- Basics are, edit the
Targetsfile to ping the hosts you're interested in to match the format found there.
- Wait 10 minutes.
To help you get started creating a container from this image you can either use docker-compose or the docker cli.
docker run -d \
-e PUID=1000 \
-e PGID=1000 \
-e TZ=Etc/UTC \
-p 80:80 \
-v /path/to/smokeping/config:/config \
-v /path/to/smokeping/data:/data \
--restart unless-stopped \
Docker images are configured using parameters passed at runtime (such as those above). These parameters are separated by a colon and indicate
<external>:<internal>respectively. For example,
-p 8080:80would expose port
80from inside the container to be accessible from the host's IP on port
8080outside the container.
You can set any environment variable from a file by using a special prepend

For all of our images we provide the ability to override the default umask settings for services started within the containers using the optional
-e UMASK=022setting. Keep in mind umask is not chmod it subtracts from permissions based on it's value it does not add. Please read up here before asking for support.
When using volumes (
-vflags), permissions issues can arise between the host OS and the container, we avoid this issue by allowing you to specify the user
Ensure any volume directories on the host are owned by the same user you specify and any permissions issues will vanish like magic.
