You can now specify two new docker flags as parameters in your Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) Task Definition. These flags are pidMode and ipcMode.
The pidMode parameter allows you to configure your containers to share their process ID (PID) namespace with other containers in the task, or with the host. Sharing the PID namespace enables for example monitoring applications deployed as containers to access information about other applications running in the same task or host.
The ipcMode parameter allows you to configure your containers to share their inter-process communication (IPC) namespace with the other containers in the task, or with the host. The IPC namespace allows containers to communicate directly through shared-memory with other containers running in the same task or host.
This feature is currently supported with EC2 launch-type. For more information about ECS, visit the Amazon ECS page.
