Possible to set docker "ionice" setting to prioritize IO?


Recommended Posts

Hello! Hopefully this is the right place to ask - is it possible to set up "ionice" settings for dockers so that I can prioritize IO operations for some applications (i.e. media, game servers, etc.) and lower the priority of others (i.e. torrent application)?

I have a cache drive but this is not a great solution for me as the majority of my media library is on spinning disk. Lots of r/w operations can cause my media server to buffer heavily, etc. so I would really like to be able to set IO priority.
