[question] Does the docker version use /tmp a lot for logging?

I am in the process of optimising my Docker configuration by having it use as much RAM as possible (I have 7-10GB in use of total 32GB). I also want to make sure my SSD with the OS and docker containers does not have any unecessary actions.

One way is to use the --tmpfs variable as explained here: 

https://docs.docker.com/storage/tmpfs/

this will make sure the container /tmp folder is mounted in RAM. Logging will not activate the SSD.

My question is if this Docker variable would be useful for FileRun, Tika, ElasticSearch. Do they actually use their internal /tmp folder?
