UCP is running devicemapper in a mode that isn't recommended for production workloads

Docker hosts running the devicemapper storage driver default to a configuration mode known as loop-lvm. This mode uses sparse files to build the thin pool used by image and container snapshots.

The preferred configuration for UCP production deployments is direct-lvm. To configure direct-lvm, please check the following link:
