Just tried to install dropbox on a TKL File server
Dropbox on Linux usually finds an issue and offers the solution:
Unable to monitor entire Dropbox folder hierarchy. Please run "echo 100000 | sudo tee /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches" and restart Dropbox to correct the problem.
However, in a container /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches cannot be changed (even by root). Probably this file isn't owned by this container (instance) and is shared by all containers.
- is it possible to change this status of individual files, i.e. add it to the container and not the OpenVZ framework
- is it perhaps better to create a VM (instead of a container)? What are the performance implication when the file server is shared between multiple VMs/Containers
- is it perhaps better to allow the host to sync dropbox and to allow all VMs & Containers access to those (and other) files? What are the performance implications here?
