Docker Configuration
For production systems, Docker should start on boot and should be configured with the following options for maximum system stability.
Storage Driver
Log Driver
overlay2
journald
For more Information about storage drivers, see https://docs.docker.com/storage/storagedriver/select-storage-driver/ and information about log drivers can be found at https://docs.docker.com/config/containers/logging/configure/
