ChirpStack Concentratord deployment

Hi all,

I have some questions regarding to ChirpStack Concentratord depolyment mode. I’m referring to the chirpstack-gateway-os-base (the image containing ChirpStack Concentratord and ChirpStack Gateway Bridge pre-installed).

1 - I found in a thread (How to Concentratord to remote Gateway Bridge - #2 by lalitshah) that “The Concentratord uses a local socket to communicate with the ChirpStack Gateway Bridge, thus both should run on the same machine.”

When referring to the same machine, must this machine be a physical gateway? Can I install the Concentratord instead on a Virtual Machine, or on an external server?

2- Is there a Docker image available for Concentratord?

Thank you
