I am working with a number of Raspberry Pis to which some microcontroller-equipped hardware is connected. This hardware is being tested remotely and automated (using Jenkins with the Docker Pipeline plugin). For every test, a Docker container is started with the necessary software inside.
Lately, I am encountering frequent (> 50% of runs) error messages when starting the Docker container:
Failed to run image '<some image>'. Error:
Yes, I am not failing to include any part of the error message, that's all there is.
I have traced the source of the error message down to a line in the docker-workflow-plugin source, but it basically says that the
java.hudson.Launcher or the process it controls fails to put an error message into
I cannot find any hints on the system (Raspi) side:
docker eventsshows the creation of the container, but does not note the start of the container,
- system logs do not show anything out of the ordinary
The error occurs mostly on one specific Raspi, but is not reproducible.
Is this a known behavior for a specific error when starting a Docker container? Do you have any ideas where I could look for reasons the container start is failing?
