docker dashboard on rails
dosh is a simple web dashboard built with ruby on rails. it is still under development and part of my bachelor thesis 'Network Virtualization for Automatic Deployment of SDR-Based Wireless Experiments' at the Institute for Networked Systems, RWTH Aachen University.
it is made to work within a docker swarm setup.
####master and docker-usrp:
as you can read in the title of my thesis, part of my setup are the 'SDR-Based Experiments'. this branch got more features which are necessary to discover USRPs (UHD driver) and allow the assignment of USRPs to containers.
normal docker web dashboard with all basic features. none additional features to set up SDR experiments.
running the rails application in a docker container is the easiest setup. just pull the image and run it with the given settings.
example usage for a linux system where you mount the docker socket from the host machine:
docker pull lheim/dosh-automated:usrp docker run --name dosh -d -p 3000:3000 -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock lheim/dosh-automated:usrp
or using the DOCKER_HOST environment variable (necessary for docker swarm):
docker pull lheim/dosh-automated:usrp docker run --name dosh -d -p 3000:3000 --net=host -e "DOCKER_HOST=tcp://192.168.1.100:3376" lheim/dosh-automated:usrp
if needed mount the usb devices to avoid UHD errors:
docker pull lheim/dosh-automated:usrp docker run --name dosh -d -p 3000:3000 --net=host -v /dev/bus/usb:/dev/bus/usb -e "DOCKER_HOST=tcp://192.168.1.100:3376" lheim/dosh-automated:usrp
the container https://hub.docker/com/r/lheim/dosh-automated is always up to date and is being rebuild every time this repo is updated.
###example usage for macOS
when you run the project on a macOS or windows machine make sure that the environment variable 'DOCKER_HOST' is set to the ip of your VM and is passed as environment variable to the container.
docker pull lheim/dosh-automated:usrp docker run --name dosh -d -p 3000:3000 -e "DOCKER_HOST=$(DOCKER_HOST)" lheim/dosh-automated:usrp
