openSUSE-OU-2018:0541-1: Optional update to add docker-img-store-setup
openSUSE Optional Update: Optional update to add docker-img-store-setup

Announcement ID: openSUSE-OU-2018:0541-1
Rating: low
References: #956085
Affected Products:
openSUSE Leap 42.3

An update that has one optional fix can now be installed.


By default Docker uses loopback mounted "devices" to store docker images
and metadata. This default storage configuration (100 GB for image
storage) leads to a rather lengthy start up phase of docker when initially

When docker is enabled by default, such as in the Amazon Container Service
images for SUSE Linux Enterprise, the slow start up time of docker upon
instance creation provides a sub optimal user experience. Additionally
other services that depend on docker being operational may time out.

The script and systemd unit file in the docker-img-store-setup package
address the problem described above. The script creates a 100 GB device
file that is then formatted with btrfs. The mounted device allows docker
to use the btrfs storage driver and the start up process is very fast.

This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12:Update update project.
