Run through Docker


Run Mosquitto:

docker run \
    --name=mosquitto \
    --detach=true \
    -tip 1883:1883 -p 9001:9001 \

Run InfluxDB:

docker run \
    --name=influxdb \
    --detach=true \
    --publish 8083:8083 --publish 8086:8086 \
    --volume="$(pwd)/var/lib/influxdb":/var/lib/influxdb \

Run Grafana:

docker run \
    --name=grafana \
    --detach=true \
    --publish=3000:3000 \
    --link influxdb:influxdb \
    --volume="$(pwd)/var/lib/grafana":/var/lib/grafana \
    --env='GF_SECURITY_ADMIN_PASSWORD=admin' \

    #--volume=/etc/grafana:/etc/grafana \

Setup Grafana Map Panel:

docker exec -i grafana grafana-cli \
    --pluginUrl \
    plugins install grafana-map-panel

docker restart grafana

Run MongoDB:

docker run \
    --name=mongodb \
    --detach=true \
    --publish 27017:27017 \
    --volume="$(pwd)/var/lib/mongodb":/var/lib/mongodb \

After provisioning, these instances can be spinned up again by invoking:

docker start mosquitto influxdb grafana mongodb


Running Kotori through Docker is easy.

Check if installation works:

docker run -it --rm daqzilla/kotori kotori --version

Invoke Kotori container linked to the other containers:

docker run \
    --volume="$(pwd)/etc":/etc/kotori \
    --publish=24642:24642 \
    --link mosquitto:mosquitto \
    --link influxdb:influxdb \
    --link grafana:grafana \
    --link mongodb:mongodb \
    -it --rm daqzilla/kotori \
    kotori --config /etc/kotori/docker-mqttkit.ini


This is a basic test to check if data is flowing correctly between the subsystems.

Submit single reading:

export CHANNEL_TOPIC=mqttkit-1/foo/bar/1/data.json
docker run \
    --link mosquitto:mosquitto \
    -it --rm eclipse-mosquitto:1.6.8 \
    mosquitto_pub -h mosquitto -t $CHANNEL_TOPIC -m '{"temperature": 42.84, "humidity": 83.1}'

Check if reading has been stored in InfluxDB:

docker run \
    --link influxdb:influxdb \
    -it --rm influxdb:1.7.10 \
    influx -precision=rfc3339 -host=influxdb -database=mqttkit_1_foo -execute='SELECT * FROM bar_1_sensors'

Go to Grafana:

open http://localhost:3000/
