Starting the container¶
docker run --rm hotio/mergerfs ...
Where can I find the source of the image?
You can click the tag name to go to the source on GitHub for that particular tag. Every tag has its own branch.
master branch is used as a landing page and to store some statistics used by this page to populate the table.
Temporary tags/branches might not show up in the table, but are also generally not for end-user consumption.
Clicking the commit sha brings you to the exact source of that commit.
Using the mergerfs mount on the host¶
By setting the
shared on the volume
mountpoint, like this
-v /data/mountpoint:/mountpoint:shared, you are able to access the mount from the host. If you want to use this mount in another container, the best solution is to create a volume on the parent folder of that mount with
bind-propagation set to
slave. For example,
-v /data:/data:slave (
/data on the host, would contain the previously created volume
mountpoint). Doing it like this will ensure that when the container creating the mount restarts, the other containers using that mount will recover and keep working.
Extra docker privileges¶
In most cases you will need some or all of the following flags added to your command to get the required docker privileges when using a mergerfs mount.
--security-opt apparmor:unconfined --cap-add SYS_ADMIN --device /dev/fuse
