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 4.10.12 release.

Install Container Manager via Synology “Package Center”. If you run an older DSM version (under 7.2), search for Docker instead of Container Manager.

  • STEP 3

Go to Control Panel / Task Scheduler / Create / Scheduled Task / User-defined script. Follow the instructions in the images below.
