Replication controller in Swarm?

(Jojojojo1234) #1

Hey. Is Swarm going to implement similar feature to K8s replication controller? Would be nice not to only have option to scale number of containers with docker-compose scale but also have watchdog checking number of running replicas and create one when another dies.

Any plan putting this into feature requests?

Hey, thanks for the input! This is something we may consider for the future.

This does not suppose to be on swarm since swarm should care about only on how to handle a cluster of hosts running docker, this its more a thing of compose since compose its the one that orchestrate and define services. There is a issue/discussion about this on
