Synology: 30 Second Dozzle Install Using Task Scheduler & Docker

How to Install Dozzle on Your Synology NAS

Dozzle is a simple and responsive application that provides you with a web based interface to monitor your Docker container logs live. It doesn’t store log information, it is for live monitoring of your container logs only. Well today I will teach you how to install Dozzle on your Synology NAS in less than 30 seconds directly through the Task Scheduler option. It’ll be over in a couple of seconds and it’s essentially child’s play.

💡Note: This guide works perfectly with the latest Dozzle 7.0.6 release.

💡Note: Check out my new guide on how to Install Dozzle Using Portainer.
