MQTT Docker on IR829 starts and stops immediately

Hi folks

 

I wonder if someone could assist me please. I am trying to get a docker based MQTT (mosquitto) server running on my IR828. This is a requirement for some IoT work we are doing. 

 

I am using the super lightweight image from Docker Hub (https://hub.docker.com/_/eclipse-mosquitto) and I can build and run the image no issues on the dev machine. I can then package, install and activate the app on the 829. However, as soon as I start it, it stops. I am using NAT network settings, however, if I choose BRIDGE, then the container starts and continues to run (the log file does however say it is waiting for an IP address, so it can't be used). I tested the router setup with the simple nodejs web server docker example (https://developer.cisco.com/docs/iox/#!tutorial-build-sample-docker-type-nodejs-based-http-server-using-alpine-base-image/overview) and this works fine (using NAT config).

 

I'm not all that experienced with the creation files, so I think there may be an issue between the Dockerfile and my package.yaml file (below). The package.yaml is a modified version of the one from the nodejs webserver example.

 

I'm wondering if the app start process is not working, and maybe there is a clash between the Dockerfile config and the package.yaml file config.

 

There is also nothing specific in the either the watchdog or container log.

 

Any help much appreciated.

 

Thanks

Andre

Re: MQTT Docker on IR829 starts and stops immediately

You may debug this application with access the app console (ioxclient app console <app name>). Firstly, deactivate the application, and then activate the application in debug mode (ioxclient app activate <app name> --debug on). start app , and access the app console using ioxclient.
For details, please refer to https://developer.cisco.com/docs/iox/#!troubleshooting-guide/troubleshooting-guide.

Thanks Steve, I'll give it a go when I'm back in the lab.
