Telegraf plugin problem

When the container is installed it is set the same port as the docker. That is why it is not set.

and I can see only an init port:

I don’t know how this Synology UI handles the docker configurations. I can’t help you there.
And I also don’t know where and how you got your InfluxDB Docker configuration for Synology.

What I do notice is that your container name is influxdb1 and not influxdb, you could try this in the Telegraf config:

  urls = ["http://influxdb1:8086"]

yes, I did it already. Still I have the same problem

I found the docker-compose on my NAS but when I show with VI it not showing any readable data. So, I struggle to give you the input that you are asking for:(

Unfortunately, I can’t help with the Synology stuff.

How did you “install” the containers?
Script? docker-compose.yml file?
Manually in the UI? Which configurations were used?
Please post precise details about this.

From which computer can you reach the UI of the InfluxDb in the browser?
With which URL exactly?

You can still try to find out more details about the containers with:

sudo docker container inspect <containerid>

First of all thanks for your efforts trying to help me…

As for the installation I used the Synology docker UI. I could download the image from (Docker Hub). Then through UI install. No scripting required. Not too much configuratzion required, you can see the prscreens for the ones that are available to configure

Once the above are done basically the containers is running.
I use from my Windows PC the link to reach Influxdb. The IP is my Synology NAS IP where the docker and the containers are running. Since I can reach the UI through this address I knew that works well. Through the brwoser I created the token, telegraf config, etc.

That is very strange. Actually, it should not work at all, because the container has no port exposed.
Unless Synology is doing something under the hood with the internal docker network.

Influxdb is running and can be accessed however within the container’s terminal the bind address already in use message pops up. I do not know if this counts

And I think Synology does. Since during the installation of the Influxdb container I select to use the same host as the docker. I assume that is why no port is assigned but use the docker

I copy here the inspect result for the influxdb container if you can find anything strange:

What is strange for me that the path it described for the config file does not exist. When I list in Putty no such directory.

please be aware. I see different mounts. You have to mount influxdb2


I´ll follow this thread, because I have the problem with ehostunreach in Node Red. So i think its a port or bind problem.

I updated the mount to influxdb2. I still have the same problem unfortunatelly.

When I go to the Terminal of the influx container and launch the influxd, it still refers to “bind address already in use”

and telegraf container also has the same error for port 8086 and 53. I do not have any clue where this port 53 is coming from.
