[openstack-dev] [kolla] [infra] Size of images built in the gate

Hi all,

I'm currently working to add new gates for the oraclelinux image base 
type (https://blueprints.launchpad.net/kolla/+spec/oraclelinux-gate) and 
had a question on size available in the gate VMs.

Right now the binary build is running out of space in the gate, as it 
exceeds the 10GB we're allocating for /var/lib/docker. For me, a current 
local build using binary+oraclelinux is clocking in at 10.01GB, where as 
the centos+binary is a little smaller at 8.89GB.

Is it written anywhere exactly what space is available in the gate VMs? 
Sam mentioned briefly that different providers used in the gate give a 
variety of disk sizes, so do we have an idea what we can reasonably bump 
the docker partition to?

The above number indicates centos will likely soon run into the same 
problem as we dockerise more of the big tent, so I think it's a good 
idea to check this now before more gates start falling over.


p.s. if people are interested here's lists sorted by name of the 
oraclelinux and centos builds:

centos: http://paste.fedoraproject.org/339673/57969163
