The team brings you another container release featuring easy user mapping and community support. Find us for support at:

  • Podcast covers everything to do with getting the most from your Linux Server plus a focus on all things Docker and containerisation!



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



docker run --name smokeping -it -d -p 8888:8888 -e PUID=1000 -e PGID=1000 -e TZ=Australia/Perth -v <PATH TO VOLUME FOLDER ON HOST>:/data -v <PATH TO VOLUME FOLDER ON HOST>:/config mattblue84/armhf-smokeping


  • -p 8888 - the port for the webUI
  • -v /data - Storage location for db and application data (graphs etc)
  • -v /config - Configure the Targets file here
  • -e PGID for for GroupID - see below for explanation
  • -e PUID for for UserID - see below for explanation
  • -e TZ for timezone setting, eg Europe/London

This container is based on alpine linux (armhf) with s6 overlay, for shell access whilst the container is running do docker exec -it smokeping /bin/bash.

User / Group Identifiers

Sometimes when using data 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 the data volume directory on the host is owned by the same user you specify and it will "just work" <sup>TM</sup>.

In this instance PUID=1001 and PGID=1001. To find yours use id user as below:

  $ id dockeruser
    uid=1001(dockeruser) gid=1001(dockergroup) groups=1001(dockergroup)

Setting up the application


Once running the URL will be http://<host-ip>:8080/smokeping/smokeping.cgi.

Basics are, edit the Targets file to ping the hosts you're interested in to match the format found there.
Wait 10 minutes.


  • To monitor the logs of the container in realtime docker logs -f smokeping.
