Volumes and Paths
There are two common problems with Docker volumes: Paths that differ between the Sonarr and download client container and paths that prevent fast moves and hard links.
The first is a problem because the download client will report a download's path as
/torrents/My.Series.S01E01/, but in the Sonarr container that might be at
/downloads/My.Series.S01E01/. The second is a performance issue and causes problems for seeding torrents. Both problems can be solved with well planned, consistent paths.
Most Docker images suggest paths like
/downloads. This causes slow moves and doesn't allow hard links because theyare considered two different file systems inside the container. Some also recommend paths for the download client container that are different from the Sonarr container, like
The best solution is to use a single, common volume inside the containers, such as
/data.Your TV shows would be in
/data/TV, torrents in
/data/downloads/torrents and/or usenet downloads in
Download Sonar Mac Software Sonar File Security Monitor for Mac OS v.2.0 Sonar can be useful for several purposes: - Monitor untrusted software with Sonar to ensure it is not installing spyware or other unauthorized files without your knowledge. Or use Yank with. Runs on: Mac OS X, Mac OS X 10.2, Mac OS X 10.3, Mac OS X 10.4, Mac OS X 10.5 Related: Sonar Audio Mac - Cakewalk Pro Audio Sonar - Steinberg Sonar For Mac - Mac Audio Level Meter Mac - Free Sonar.
If this advice is not followed, you may have to configure a Remote Path Mapping in the Sonarr web UI (Settings › Download Clients).
Ownership and Permissions
- Use homebrew again. This time install the sonar-runner formula. Finally, add a little to your.bashrc file. Run brew install sonar-runner; Follow the instructions at the end of the install. (If you missed them you can always show them again with brew info sonar-runner.) NOTE: I found that I didn’t have to modify sonar-runner.properties.
- CodeWeavers has a technology called CrossOver that is basically a Windows-to-Mac translator, allowing native Windows applications to run on a Mac. Together, Cakewalk and CodeWeavers used CrossOver to enable a native Windows version of SONAR Home Studio to run on a Mac.
Permissions and ownership of files is one of the most common problems for Sonarr users, both inside and outside Docker. Most images have environment variables that can be used to overridethe default user, group and umask, you should decide this before setting up all of your containers.The recommendation is to use a common group for all related containers so that each container can use the shared group permissions to read and write files on the mounted volumes.
Keep in mind that Sonarr will need read and write to the download folders as well as the final folders.

Before you Begin
Make sure you have Homebrew installed and are on the latest version of Java. If you don’t update Java then you may run into issues when starting the Sonar server.
To install Homebrew follow the instructions at brew.sh.
To update Java follow the Stack Overflow instructions for How to Install Java 8 on Mac. (It’s pretty much
brew cask install java.)
If you can’t change versions of Java then try out the rest of the steps and see if sonar will run for you. If not, you may need to maintain multiple versions of Java.
If you run into problems using homebrew, then use the
brew doctor command to find out what’s wrong with your system. Follow the instructions it prints out to fix it.
Sonar For Mac Os X
Note: You may compare the steps listed in this guide with this blog article on installing Sonar on Mac. I found some of the steps unnecessary and don’t list them here. See also related guides: Get Started in Two Minutes, Installing a Plugin,JS Sonar Example, and Sonar Project Properties File Example.
brew install sonarin a terminal window
- Find your sonar plugins directory. In my case it was
/usr/local/Cellar/sonar/5.1.2/libexec/extensions/plugins/. Yours will be somewhere ending with “
/libexec/extensions/plugins” and you can normally figure it out by inspecting the output of
brew list sonar.
Install sonar-runner and Modify Your Environment
Use homebrew again. This time install the
sonar-runner formula. Finally, add a little to your
brew install sonar-runner
- Follow the instructions at the end of the install. (If you missed them you can always show them again with
brew info sonar-runner.) NOTE: I found that I didn’t have to modify
sonar-runner.properties. You do have to add something like
Configure and Analyze Your Project
You need to add a properties file to you project, launch the Sonar server, run the analysis, and view the results.
1. In a terminal window launch the Sonar server with
sonar console. Leave it running. (You can kill it when you’re all done with “⌘-.”.)
sonar-project.properties file like this one:
3. In the terminal run the analysis with
4. View the results by navigating to http://localhost:9000. Your project should be listed at the top of the right-hand column.
