I’m interested in trying out containerd and I’m wondering if there is any advice on how to get started besides the https://containerd.tools/ website and the source code itself.
I’ve been using the checkpoint/restore mechanism for Docker that was introduced in this pull request. Ultimately the pull request was closed in favor of integrating this feature with containerd in the future. The code is still available but no longer maintained. I’ve been running into some bugs, so I’m interested in exploring alternatives.
I’ve downloaded the 0.0.5 alpha release of containerd. But I haven’t seen much information about how to use it (does it need to be started as a service?).
I’ll probably try experimenting with it and see what I can figure out. But I thought I’d ask here too in case anyone knows of a good resource for getting started. Or has information about the status of containerd working with checkpoints (which is the use case I’m interested in).
