This is a prolog: after writing all the stuff below, what I did not want to get lost is the fact there is missing information. What size is each docker container? Right now I have to load each one and test it to see what it is when I would be better served by the information being listed for me.
The information that I am trying to find it what is the capacity limits of the different docker containers. As an IT pro, I need to know before I suggest or load up an image what am I getting. All I have been trying to say it is that information is nowhere to be found. I will have to load each and every instance of Dockerized OEMR and test it to find out. That should not be.
I know you can increase the size of the instance by stopping and scaling. But again there is no documentation as to what size will the docker container be when that is done. AWS documents what you will be scaling the host machine too but we don’t document what the Docker container size is going to be once the scaling is over.
So, I have a client that has 30GB of patient data files from the documents folder that I need to import into the docker container. Which docker image do I use to hold that 30GB of data files?
That was the situation I was in. We stopped the instance and increase the hard drive/ storage from 8GB to 30GB on the host machine and then tried to import the files and still got the error not enough space. So the host drive size increased but the dock container did not scale. Dockercker container stayed at 1.0GB.
When I run the docker info command it does not return the desired information.
