Docker Storage Drivers

Docker Storage Drivers

Not every docker storage driver is compatible with each kernel version, and some storage drivers have additional configuration that is required or recommended to run in a production environment. For example, running a server with the devicemapper storage driver in loopback mode is ok for a test environment or locally, but not recommended in a production setup.

When a server is running with an improperly configuraed storage driver, it might be ok for some time, and start to experience problems at load or after a specific number of containers are running.

The support bundle analyzers look for known incompatible or not-recommended storage driver settings and will report these as errors when detected.
