Using this image

By default, Chronograf listens on port 10000 and stores its data in a volume at /var/lib/chronograf. You can start an instance with:

$ docker run -p 10000:10000 chronograf

You can also use a custom configuration file or environment variables to modify Chronograf settings.

Using a custom config file

A sample configuration file can be obtained by:

$ docker run --rm chronograf -sample-config > chronograf.conf

Once you’ve customized chronograf.conf, you can run the Chronograf container with it mounted in the expected location (note the name change!):

$ docker run -p 10000:10000 \
      -v $PWD/chronograf.conf:/etc/chronograf/chronograf.conf:ro

Modify $PWD to the directory where you want to store the configuration file.

Using environment variables (preferred)

You may have noticed that the default Bind value in the configuration is set to 127.0.0.1:10000, though the container will listen on 0.0.0.0:10000 instead. This is due to a default configuration file being provided inside of the image. You can override values inside of the configuration file using environment variables following the CamelCase to CHRONOGRAF_CAMEL_CASE pattern:

SETTING ENV VAR
Bind CHRONOGRAF_BIND
LocalDatabase CHRONOGRAF_LOCAL_DATABASE
QueryResponseBytesLimit CHRONOGRAF_QUERY_RESPONSE_BYTES_LIMIT
