How to Install Speedtest Tracker on Your Synology NAS with Docker

Last updated on May 8th, 2023 at 12:22 pm

SpeedTest Tracker will run a speed test every hour automatically. The results will show up in a nice graph. You will also be able to view a history of previously run tests. The back-end is written in Laravel, and the front-end uses React. It uses Ookla’s speedtest cli package to get the data and uses Chart.js to plot the results. We will install this using the Task Scheduler option on your Synology NAS.

Code Source: GitHub

Skip to Docker code / Skip to Compose & Portainer code

See the Guide in Action
