I was able to launch 200 containers featuring Ubuntu18, php, nginx & wordpress. I had the mysql database elsewhere to service the 200 containers. It seems to work find but with a stress test running and ClamAV at the same time the CPU was maxing out according to NetData monitor.
The boss as requested me to push it to 500 containers.
I adjusted the settings as suggested here: https://github.com/lxc/lxd/blob/master/doc/production-setup.md
We have Intel® Xeon® CPU L5630 @ 2.13GHz, 16 cores
HD & RAM seem fine.
I have not tried it yet as I am waiting to hear back about what limits each container can have, etc but curious what everyone thinks… Is it possible? crazy?
Thanks and cheers for the good work. Really impressed by the whole LXC / LXD system
