I have this weird error on my Kubernetes test cluster. I'm running Kubernetes 1.7.0 and docker
Docker version 1.12.6, build 78d1802
I have a separate volume mounted as
/dockerdata and symlinked
/var/lib/docker into this volume. I have ample space available on both my system volume and the dockerdata volume (more than 50% free). I still get ImagePullBackOff errors from kubernetes, the detailed error is:
Failed to pull image "<redacted>": rpc error: code = 2 desc = failed to register layer: ApplyLayer exit status 1 stdout: stderr: open /usr/share/man/es/man1/fakeroot-sysv.1.gz: no space left on device.
If I manually clean up by removing stale images I can get around this, but as far as I can see I shouldn't have to - since none of my volumes are nearing full capacity (which I guess is also why the Kubernetes GC doesn't kick in).
I'm guessing there's something I don't understand about how Docker works in relation to local disks but I'm stumped. Any pointers appreciated.
Here's some more info: symlink info:
/var/lib/docker: symbolic link to /dockerdata
