  • overlay-filesystem that can differentiate between metadata and file content?December 16

    AFAIK with aufs when a file is touched (ie. only it's metadata changed, not it's contents), then the copy-on-write mechanism of the file system will copy the whole file into the r/w layer, essentially duplicating the file. Say, I only want to change

  • Docker - Force to Use AUFS Instead of BTRFSJuly 25
