I am running a python process inside one docker on bluemix, that python process downloads some files from an ftp server, and parses them.
Initially, I used a “default” size for the container, the “micro” size that has 256 MB Ram and 16GB Storage, but I am running out of space for process the files…. I need around 25 GB of Disk….
Now, I am sure about what to do… Should I contract a bigger image, the tiny one, with 512MB Ram and 32GB Storage, or is better to contract a volume ?
I am aware that if contracting a volume, I can run other containers vs the same volume, and have for example, a specific container for an ftp server (allowing me to access the same shared volume and download the data), a specific container for backup/restore, etc.. . But my doubt is about perfomance…. Volumes can be contracted with .25, 2 or 4 IOPS (perfomance), but not sure which one is the default on the docker you already have… Any suggestion ?
