Full Description

What is ADEI

ADEI (Advanced Data Extraction Infrastracture) is a dynamic web interface facilitating browsing and extraction of time-series data from various data sources. It is originally developed at Institute for Data Processing and Electronics at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology to provide operators and scientists access to control data of several running experiments.

How to use this image

ADEI image will run 2 services: apache and cron. Cron will periodically poll the source database for new data and aggregate statistics in the MySQL caching database. The apache web server will run ADEI web interface. This image does not include required caching MySQL database. Either existing MySQL should be used or standard MySQL container linked in.

Start container with existing caching database

$ docker run -p 80:80 --name some-adei -e MYSQL_SERVER=mysql_server -e MYSQL_USER=adei -e MYSQL_PASSWORD=adei -e MYSQL_DATABASE=adei -d chsa/adei

... where mysql_server is a name or ip of the server running MySQL, MYSQL_USER / MYSQL_PASSWORD specifies credentials to access the server, and MYSQL_DATABASE specifies the database where cached data would be stored. The specified user should have a full access to the specified database on the server.

Start container linked to the MySQL container:

$ docker run -p 80:80 --link adei-mysql:adei-mysql -d chsa/adei

... where MySQL container should be started with

$ docker run --name adei-mysql -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD="secret" -e MYSQL_DATABASE="adei" -e MYSQL_USER="adei" -e MYSQL_PASSWORD="adei" -d mysql:5.7

... the credentials and database might be set freely and passed to ADEI container with MYSQL_USER, MYSQL_PASSWORD, MYSQL_DATABASE parameters

Start using mapping on different port

The port should be specified to ADEI using the environmental variable

$ docker run -p 8000:80 -e ADEI_PORTS=8000 --link adei-mysql:adei-mysql -d chsa/adei

Environment Variables
