Does Docker container disable the memory deduplication?


(Xin Li) #1

Hi, I am new to Docker, I recently learned that the Linux memory management has the feature which is called “Memory Deduplication”, which is basically let one content maintains only one copy in the memory. What I concern is that, when multiple containers runs on the same machine, do they share the some contents in the memroy?

Thanks!

no as far as I know and someone please correct me if I am wrong but

containers will not engage in any memory de-duplication

Thank you for your replying. And do you know where can I find the documents about how containers prevent deduplication? Thank you.
