You can run the Edge Xrt GPS Device Service in a docker container.
The following examples use the
iotechsys/xrt:2.1 docker image.
You can run the Edge Xrt docker container on either of the following networks:
- Docker bridge
Run on Host Network
In the following example
xrt-gps provides the name of the running container,
docker run --rm --network=host --name xrt-gps -v <deployment_directory>/deployment:/opt/iotech/xrt/2.1/deployment iotechsys/xrt:2.1 [time_in_seconds]
Run on Docker Bridge Network
When running the GPS Service on a Docker bridge network and connecting to a GPSD instance that is not running on the same network the port should be exposed as follows:
Where gpsd_port is the port of the GPSD instance and device_port is the port used by a device added to the GPS Service.
In the following example command the network flag is set to <docker_bridge_network>, specifying the docker network to connect to,
xrt-gps provides the name of the running container, <deployment_directory> provides the location of the config folder, and [time_in_seconds] can optionally define the time for which Edge Xrt is to run in seconds:
docker run --rm --name xrt-gps --port <gpsd_port>:<device_port> -v <deployment_directory>/deployment:/opt/iotech/xrt/2.1/deployment \ --network <docker_bridge_network> iotechsys/xrt:2.1 [timeout in secs]
If the network flag is not included in the command, the default bridge network is used.
