Docker plugin randomly fails with disk full


I’m running Drone 0.8.0 in kubernetes, but I’m having trouble with the docker plugin failing randomly because of disk full:

9c16c8f77362: Download complete
time=“2017-09-26T11:12:50.765859244Z” level=error msg=“Download failed: write /drone/docker/tmp/GetImageBlob249940331: no space left on device”

I’ve been checking the node but I can’t see what’s running out of free space there. Where does the docker plugin need the free space? I’m using the overlay2 fs btw.


hmm, I just realized that the path was specified as /tmp/docker in the config for the plugin. That’s a 6gb tmpfs, so I guess that’s what I should be moving to a bigger volume :slight_smile:
