Synology Install Doku With Portainer

Synology Install Doku With Portainer

My previous guide for Doku involved the use of Task Scheduler. Today I’m offering a recommended and excellent alternative for installing the latest Doku version via Portainer. Doku is a simple, lightweight web-based application that allows you to monitor Docker disk usage in a user-friendly manner. The Doku displays the amount of disk space used by the Docker daemon, splits by images, containers, volumes, and builder cache. Doku is a great alternative to Glances. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Doku on your Synology NAS using Docker & Portainer. 🚀Note: If you need a more powerful and professional tool to monitor your Docker containers, check out my outstanding article: Monitor Your Synology With Grafana and Prometheus Dashboard.

💡Note: This guide works perfectly with the latest Doku v0.0.16 release.
