Default Mirth Filesystem on AWS Elastic Container Service

The installation directory for Mirth Connect includes the Application Data Directory, Configuration Directory, and some other folders like custom-lib.

The configuration files in those folders are needed for startup — does that mean that the content is all stored in Mirth’s local memory after starting up mcservice? For your custom-lib JARs, configuration map variables, and startup configuration files, are they used just for carrying over settings when you restart mcservice?

What happens if your filesystem does not persist once Mirth is already running? I am wondering whether that would interrupt the running process or only prevent saving changes to the configuration files before terminating your service.

We are looking into running Mirth via AWS Elastic Container Service and need to know whether a new container instance launching with a new filesystem will cause problems, or if all the application state is saved in the database.

None of the stuff you mentioned is stored in the database.

The mirth.properties file, among other things, tells the application how to connect to the database.

Configuration map variables are only stored in the file. They are loaded on startup and kept in memory.

The custom jars are libraries that can be considered part of the application. They are loaded on demand when channels that use them are started.
