Ephemeral_disk on periodic job?

Is it possible to set up a sticky ephemeral disk for a periodic job? My use case is that I have cached files that speed up the job’s execution, but it’s fine for them to be dropped at any time.

My workaround is using a normal volume, but this requires more setup than I’d like.

Hi @zombiezen,

Each launch of a periodic job is a child and separate job that the parent which means it would not work with ephemeral disks I am afraid.

Gotcha. Thanks for confirming!
