I considered this but unfortunately I have a partition layout as follows:
df -Th on HN:
Filesystem Type Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 ext3 92G 1.4G 86G 2% /
tmpfs tmpfs 4.0G 0 4.0G 0% /lib/init/rw
udev tmpfs 10M 40K 10M 1% /dev
tmpfs tmpfs 4.0G 0 4.0G 0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda3 xfs 4.7T 269G 4.5T 6% /data
ls -la /vz
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 2008-07-07 14:30 /vz -> /data/vz
My plan then was to keep all containters in /data essentially. If I
understand mount correctly bind will make the whole /data available to
the relevant container instead of it being controlled by a specific quota.
Another option I had was to repartition and make a specific /dev/sdaX
available to the one container. This would work but does limit the
options I have - If I needed more disk space on another container at a
later stage I'm constrained by this setup.
Thanks for reply.
