Large build directory

Hi, I would like to use concourse to build Yocto/OE images. The build directory for OE can be quite large (20GB+), and must be re-used between subsequent builds. We currently using docker containers for OE builds (, but we map the build directory from the host machine into the container.

I’m just getting started with concourse, so don’t understand the details yet. How does concourse handle build directories? Does the build directory exist on the host and get mapped into the container? Can any of this be specified?


we already had a question about build caches, exactly for Yocto, see Pipeline for Yocto/Bitbake builds?
