Docker image size limitation


I have this docker container, which I copied 30GB of data to it.
Trying to do docker commit <id> newimage results with below error in logs:

time="2018-08-19T12:01:29.435623596Z" level=error msg="Can't add file /var/lib/docker/overlay2/92ee42dc227839b7d24d1f480903713d56095e57a7c54f7aef89096473a16e42/diff/home/cef/chromium/src/.git/objects/pack/pack-7818661fe2ef9b7a0f9526e2ea51b0ccb5fd8683.pack to tar: io: read/write on closed pipe"

This file is 13G size.

Did I hit some sort of limit here?
