Hello togehter,
I want to bind mount 10 + x ZFS datasets into a lxc container. Is this an bad idea?
What is the maximum recommended number of bind mounts for a container?
According to man pct the bind mount limit seems to be 256 (mp0 - 255) is this assumption correct?

Thanks!
Chris

bindmounts are rather inexpensive, so it should be fine to use as many as you need.

Maybe we get rbind support soon, so that you can bind mount a whole zfs dataset tree recursively into a container.
