Tautulli in a FreeNAS Jail

At the time of preparing this post, I’m working with FreeNAS 11.3-U4-1 and Tautulli 2.5.5.

As evidenced in the forum thread Tautulli been running fine but now can’t start, the transition from Python 2 to 3 has been somewhat bumpy for Tautulli users on FreeNAS. The Tautulli FreeBSD/FreeNAS Installation Instructions lends itself to scripting, however, it leaves the Tautulli database in the jail. The hint on how to relocate the Tautulli database outside the jail is included in the forum resource FN11.3 iocage jails – Plex, Tautulli, Sonarr, Radarr, Lidarr, Jackett, Transmission, Organizr.

This scripted installation of Tautulli will create a jail, install the latest version of Tautulli for FreeBSD from tautulli.com, and store its data files outside the jail where it can be more easily managed. Scripted installation instructions are at https://github.com/basilhendroff/freenas-iocage-tautulli.

Curiously, apart from the hint, Googling got me zip about tautulli_flags. I had to contact the Tautulli developer on Discord to find out what Tautulli flag options existed. This is how you list them:

  1. Assuming your Tautulli jail is named tautulli, enter the Tautulli jail iocage console tautulli.
  2. Enter the command cd /usr/local/share/Tautulli && python Tautulli.py --help.

Here are the flags in all their glory:
