Environment Vars

  • POLLER: Set poller count. Defaults to 16
  • TZ: Set timezone. Defaults to UTC

Convert from older version with integrated DB to new container

  • we use "ocontainer" as container name. replace it with your name.
mkdir mysql
docker exec -it ocontainer mysqldump observium > mysql/observiumdb.sql
mkdir data
mv config data/ && mv rrd data/ && mv logs data/
chown nobody:users data -R
  • now run your db container, we use the example from above, then run this command (observium-db is the container name)
echo "#!/bin/bash" > mysql/
echo "mysql -u observium -pobserviumpwd observium < /var/lib/mysql/observiumdb.sql" >> mysql/
chmod 0755 mysql/
docker exec -it observium-db bash /var/lib/mysql/
rm -f mysql/ mysql/observiumdb.sql
rm data/config/databases -rf
  • now run your observium container, like the example from above


  • to use the weathermap plugin do following:
[change to your data folder on host]
mkdir plugins (if it not exists. first run of this container will create it.)
cd plugins
git clone weathermap
