Logstash 5.6 Persistent Queue issue (Docker)

I currently have logstash running within a docker container and when I have it configured for persistent queue it works as it should. The only issue is when I mount a volume to where the persistent queue directory resides in the vm the logstash pipeline will not start. It seems as if the paging mechinism will not work if you mount a volume to where the queues exist and it sucks because if the docker VM has a critical failure then events that were saved to the persistent queues are lost! Thus the reason why having it mount to a volume on the host is essential. looks like the offended class is: JrubyAckedQueueExtLibrary.java. Anyone else ran into this type of issue? And FYI- Mounting a volume to the dead_letter_queue works perfectly fine, the .sincedb files and queue files get copied to the host with no exceptions.

queue.type: persisted
path.queue: /opt/logstash/persistance/data
queue.max_events: 0
queue.max_bytes: 10240mb
queue.checkpoint.acks: 1024
queue.checkpoint.writes: 1024
queue.checkpoint.interval: 1000

What Docker storage driver are you using? What kind of backing file system? Which version of Docker? Which kernel?

Thanks for the response. Looks like I figured it out. Seems there is a kernel conflict with mounting on a mac host. mounting on a linux vm has no issues :slight_smile:
