I'm having troubles googling this, can someone point me to info that shows how to size hardware for container use? Also if this is not possible let me know.

I decided to test ProxMox to see if I could increase density on existing hardware. Looking to run 100's of containers per node, if possible? All of the containers are exactly the same size and function, they do flat db pulls.
CT = Ubuntu 16.04, 3 gigs ram, 50 gigs storage, prefer thin provisioned.
 
Hi,

I'm having troubles googling this, can someone point me to info that shows how to size hardware for container use?
There is no general answer to this question and depend on the container.
Are the containers light container what do the whole time nothing?
Or are they heavy duty one what operate an SQLDB with hundred thousand IOPS?

Looking to run 100's of containers per node, if possible?
Yes, we have a customer that runs over 1000 CT on a node.
 
Thank you for the reply. The containers pull data from flat files, these are small queries about every 3-7 minutes. i/o is very low between 10 and 25.
I need to figure out what the max i/o is on the nodes.

The customer that runs 1000's of CT's any idea what they are using for hardware?
