@xxradar Is there something specific about swarm manager running on the same machine as the worker nodes that makes you say you wouldn’t recommend it for production?
We currently have docker engine v1.13 and about a dozen and a half or more containers running on a single (fairly substantial metal Ubuntu 14.04 LTS) machine now in production without swarm mode. If we were to enable swarm mode, what changes underneath that it now becomes not recommended for production?
The reason we would consider enabling swarm mode is because we want to take advantage of the “secrets” capability for the containers that is only available in swarm mode, but I am interested to learn what will make it less reliable if we enable swarm mode.
Is there some calculation of additional resources (RAM, etc) that is needed for swam manager on the same machine before considering this?
