Smokeping keeps track of your network latency. For a full example of what this application is capable of visit UCDavis.

Supported Architectures

Our images support multiple architectures such as x86-64, arm64 and armhf. We utilise the docker manifest for multi-platform awareness. More information is available from docker here and our announcement here.

Simply pulling linuxserver/smokeping should retrieve the correct image for your arch, but you can also pull specific arch images via tags.

The architectures supported by this image are:

Architecture

Tag

x86-64

amd64-latest

arm64

arm64v8-latest

armhf

arm32v7-latest

Usage

Here are some example snippets to help you get started creating a container from this image.

docker

docker create \
--name=smokeping \
-e PUID=1000 \
-e PGID=1000 \
-e TZ=Europe/London \
-p 80:80 \
-v </path/to/smokeping/config>:/config \
-v </path/to/smokeping/data>:/data \
--restart unless-stopped \
linuxserver/smokeping

docker-compose

Compatible with docker-compose v2 schemas.

---
version: "2"
services:
smokeping:
image: linuxserver/smokeping
container_name: smokeping
environment:
- PUID=1000
- PGID=1000
- TZ=Europe/London
volumes:
- </path/to/smokeping/config>:/config
- </path/to/smokeping/data>:/data
ports:
- 80:80
restart: unless-stopped

Parameters

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 8080:80 would expose port 80 from inside the container to be accessible from the host's IP on port 8080 outside the container.

Ports (-p)

Parameter

Function

80

Allows HTTP access to the internal webserver.

Environment Variables (-e)

Env

Function

PUID=1000

for UserID - see below for explanation

PGID=1000

for GroupID - see below for explanation

TZ=Europe/London

Specify a timezone to use EG Europe/London

Volume Mappings (-v)

Volume

Function

/config

Configure the Targets file here

/data

Storage location for db and application data (graphs etc)

User / Group Identifiers

When using volumes (-v flags), permissions issues can arise between the host OS and the container, we avoid this issue by allowing you to specify the user PUID and group PGID.

Ensure any volume directories on the host are owned by the same user you specify and any permissions issues will vanish like magic.

In this instance PUID=1000 and PGID=1000, to find yours use id user as below:

$ id username
uid=1000(dockeruser) gid=1000(dockergroup) groups=1000(dockergroup)

Application Setup

  • Once running the URL will be http://<host-ip>/.

  • Basics are, edit the Targets file to ping the hosts you're interested in to match the format found there.

  • Wait 10 minutes.

Support Info

  • Shell access whilst the container is running:

    • docker exec -it smokeping /bin/bash

  • To monitor the logs of the container in realtime:

    • docker logs -f smokeping

  • Container version number

    • docker inspect -f '{{ index .Config.Labels "build_version" }}' smokeping

  • Image version number

    • docker inspect -f '{{ index .Config.Labels "build_version" }}' linuxserver/smokeping
