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

Supported Architectures

We utilise the docker manifest for multi-platform awareness. More information is available from docker here and our announcement here.

Simply pulling lscr.io/linuxserver/smokeping:latest 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 Available Tag
x86-64 amd64-<version tag>
arm64 arm64v8-<version tag>
armhf

Application Setup

  • Once running, the URL will be http://<host-ip>/smokeping/smokeping.cgi. For example, a full URL might look like https://smokeping.yourdomain.com/smokeping/smokeping.cgi.
  • Basic setup: edit the Targets file to ping the hosts you're interested in to match the format found there.
  • Wait 10 minutes.
  • To reload the configuration without restarting the container, run docker exec smokeping pkill -f -HUP '/usr/bin/perl /usr/s?bin/smokeping(_cgi)?', where smokeping is the container ID.
  • To restart the container, run docker restart smokeping, where smokeping is the container ID.

Usage

To help you get started creating a container from this image you can either use docker-compose or the docker cli.

docker-compose (recommended, click here for more info)

---
version: "2.1"
services:
  smokeping:
    image: lscr.io/linuxserver/smokeping:latest
    container_name: smokeping
    environment:
      - PUID=1000
      - PGID=1000
      - TZ=Etc/UTC
    volumes:
      - /path/to/smokeping/config:/config
      - /path/to/smokeping/data:/data
    ports:
      - 80:80
    restart: unless-stopped

docker cli (click here for more info)

docker run -d \
  --name=smokeping \
  -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 \
  lscr.io/linuxserver/smokeping:latest

Parameters

Containers 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.

Parameter Function
-p 80 Allows HTTP access to the internal webserver.
-e PUID=1000 for UserID - see below for explanation
-e PGID=1000 for GroupID - see below for explanation
-e TZ=Etc/UTC specify a timezone to use, see this list.
-v /config Configure the Targets file here
-v /data Storage location for db and application data (graphs etc)

Environment variables from files (Docker secrets)

You can set any environment variable from a file by using a special prepend FILE__.

As an example:

-e FILE__MYVAR=/run/secrets/mysecretvariable

Will set the environment variable MYVAR based on the contents of the /run/secrets/mysecretvariable file.

Umask for running applications

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=022 setting. 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.

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 your_user as below:

id your_user

Example output:

uid=1000(your_user) gid=1000(your_user) groups=1000(your_user)

Docker Mods

Docker Mods Docker Universal Mods

We publish various Docker Mods to enable additional functionality within the containers. The list of Mods available for this image (if any) as well as universal mods that can be applied to any one of our images can be accessed via the dynamic badges above.

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" }}' lscr.io/linuxserver/smokeping:latest

Updating Info

Most of our images are static, versioned, and require an image update and container recreation to update the app inside. With some exceptions (ie. nextcloud, plex), we do not recommend or support updating apps inside the container. Please consult the Application Setup section above to see if it is recommended for the image.

Below are the instructions for updating containers:

Via Docker Compose

  • Update images:

    • All images:

      docker-compose pull
    • Single image:

      docker-compose pull smokeping
  • Update containers:

    • All containers:

      docker-compose up -d
    • Single container:

      docker-compose up -d smokeping
  • You can also remove the old dangling images:

    docker image prune

Via Docker Run

  • Update the image:

    docker pull lscr.io/linuxserver/smokeping:latest
  • Stop the running container:

    docker stop smokeping
  • Delete the container:

    docker rm smokeping
  • Recreate a new container with the same docker run parameters as instructed above (if mapped correctly to a host folder, your /config folder and settings will be preserved)

  • You can also remove the old dangling images:

    docker image prune

Via Watchtower auto-updater (only use if you don't remember the original parameters)

  • Pull the latest image at its tag and replace it with the same env variables in one run:

    docker run --rm \
      -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
      containrrr/watchtower \
      --run-once smokeping
  • You can also remove the old dangling images: docker image prune

warning: We do not endorse the use of Watchtower as a solution to automated updates of existing Docker containers. In fact we generally discourage automated updates. However, this is a useful tool for one-time manual updates of containers where you have forgotten the original parameters. In the long term, we highly recommend using Docker Compose.

Image Update Notifications - Diun (Docker Image Update Notifier)

tip: We recommend Diun for update notifications. Other tools that automatically update containers unattended are not recommended or supported.

Building locally

If you want to make local modifications to these images for development purposes or just to customize the logic:

git clone https://github.com/linuxserver/docker-smokeping.git
cd docker-smokeping
docker build \
  --no-cache \
  --pull \
  -t lscr.io/linuxserver/smokeping:latest .

The ARM variants can be built on x86_64 hardware using multiarch/qemu-user-static

docker run --rm --privileged multiarch/qemu-user-static:register --reset

Once registered you can define the dockerfile to use with -f Dockerfile.aarch64.
