Access to devices on the host
If you need to directly expose some host devices to a container, you can use
the devices parameter in the
host_config param in
as shown below:
c.create_container( 'busybox', 'true', host_config=docker.utils.create_host_config(devices=[ '/dev/sda:/dev/xvda:rwm' ]) )
Each string is a single mapping using the colon (':') as the separator. So the above example essentially allow the container to have read write permissions to access the host's /dev/sda via a node named /dev/xvda in the container. The devices parameter is a list to allow multiple devices to be mapped.
