Synology: Install Dozzle With Portainer

Synology Install Dozzle With Portainer

My previous guide for Dozzle involved the use of Task Scheduler. Today I’m offering a recommended and excellent alternative for installing the latest Dozzle version via Portainer. 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. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Dozzle on your Synology NAS using Docker & Portainer.

💡Note: This guide works perfectly with the latest Dozzle 5.5.0 release.
