This chapter describes smartlog-client and smartlog-installer usage, as well as some common problems and solutions.

Access Smartlog API

Smartlog API is accessible on server port 8080. Smartlog client utilizes Swagger, you can browse and test it via web browser. Currently there's no authentication so make sure to limit access to the port.

Passing arguments to installer script

If you need to pass arguments to peers docker run command, you can do so with environment variable PEER_EXTRA_ARGS. All commands that docker run understands, can be used.

Here's an example where we map to IP:

$ curl -s "" | sudo PEER_EXTRA_ARGS="--add-host" bash

Setting Smartlog environment up manually

You should never run anything blindly on your server, so perhaps you would like to install Smartlog manually? Installer script is very straightforward and easy to follow. In practice, installer stops and removes previous versions, removes smartlog docker network, pulls latest images and starts them with certain required arguments. Perhaps the most important ones are CouchDB credentials and bind mounts. If you want deeper understanding about what is what, take a look at Overview.

You need to provide the client certificate in the request, otherwise the connection to API's can't be established. Certificate and key can be found from the "crypto-config" folder and those are named client.key and client.crt
