Hi All.

I am currently running docker 1.13 on CentOS 7 boxes with devicemapper storage plugin. I would like to know what are your experiences in regard to:
– storage plugins
kernel versions
– stability

I consider upgrade to docker 17.03.1 and would like to choose most stable combination of kernel/storage plugin.

Thanks for all info!

BR, Rafal.

  • If you really want the most stable setup which is well tested with the Red Hat environment I’d suggest to stop using upstream and use the docker in the extras repo, which is the same as the docker in the RHEL
    extras repo and is patched to work optimally with Red Hat and is tested by them.

    If you have plenty of block storage I’d use devicemapper with a thin pool LVM setup.

    We’ve recently switched to overlay2 as our graph driver, although that is in a CI and nor prod environment … you may want to carry out some comparisons.
