Run with Docker
CIMonitor is pre-packaged for you in a docker container, making it super easy to run CIMonitor when you have docker installed. You can find all available tags on the docker hub.
Running the docker container
To run CIMonitor there is one file you need to prepare, being the config file. Make sure you've set up the configuration file as described on the configuration page.
Optionally, you can provide another json file to store CIMonitor's statuses in. This can be an empty json file, that will be filled by the container once it's running. This way the statuses won't be lost when you restart the container.
Open your terminal in a folder with a
config.json file and optionally a
saved-statuses.json file and run the following command:
docker run -ti \ -p 9999:9999 \ -v $PWD/config.json:/opt/CIMonitor/config/config.json \ -v $PWD/saved-statuses.json:/opt/CIMonitor/config/saved-statuses.json \ cimonitor/server:latest
-p 9999:9999 you define at what port you want to run your docker container, you can change the first number to anything you like (
-p 4567:9999 for example).
Pretty much the same goes when you want to run the module-client application, you can run:
docker run -ti \ -v $PWD/config.json:/opt/CIMonitor/config/config.json \ cimonitor/module-client:latest
Main difference is that the server slave doesn't need a saved statuses file.
Note: If you want to run a different version than
latest, check the docker hub!
Run on ARM (Raspberry pi)
We have also prepared a docker container that can run on ARM systems (a Raspberry pi for example). Check if your ARM device
is running at 64 bits or 32 bits, and append the following to your docker-tag accordingly:
-arm32. So running
the latest version of CIMonitor on a Raspberry pi 3 will look like the following:
docker run -ti \ -p 9999:9999 \ -v $PWD/config.json:/opt/CIMonitor/config/config.json \ -v $PWD/saved-statuses.json:/opt/CIMonitor/config/saved-statuses.json \ cimonitor/server:latest-arm64
Check all available tags on the docker hub.
