I installed docker on a Debian 7 machine in the following way

echo deb http://get.docker.io/ubuntu docker main >

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list

sudo apt-get update curl -sSL https://get.docker.com/ubuntu/ | sudo sh

After that when I first tried creating an Image it failed with the
following error

  time="2015-06-02T14:26:37-04:00" level=info msg="[8] System error: write /sys/fs/cgroup/docker/01f5670fbee1f6687f58f3a943b1e1bdaec2630197fa4da1b19cc3db7e3d3883/cgroup.procs: no space left on device"

Here is the docker info

Containers: 2
Images: 21
Storage Driver: aufs
Root Dir: /var/lib/docker/aufs
Backing Filesystem: extfs
Dirs: 25
Dirperm1 Supported: true
Execution Driver: native-0.2
Kernel Version: 3.16.0-0.bpo.4-amd64
Operating System: Debian GNU/Linux 7 (wheezy)
CPUs: 2
  Total Memory: 15.7 GiB


WARNING: No memory limit support
  WARNING: No swap limit support

How can I increase the memory? Where are the system configurations stored?

When I got rid of all the images and containers it did free some space and
the image build ran longer before failing with the same error. So the
question is, which space is this referring to and how do I configure it?

    The default docker storage driver allocates 10GB storage blocks for your
    images. Move to overlayfs and avoid this entirely. In the command that
    starts your docker daemon just add "-s overlayfs" (or maybe -s overlay, I
    can't remember)

    I hit this a week ago and this solved my problem.
