CPU Load Greater than 90%, Daemon Unresponsive

I was recently accepted to the Docker for Mac beta, and decided to give it a whirl. So far, I’ve run into two big problems:

  • No matter how well-provisioned I make the VM using the Docker for Mac settings, after a period of time the docker daemon becomes unresponsive and all cores provisioned to the vm consistently are at 90+% load.

  • Even before the load, the daemon will become unresponsive (the docker * commands have no effect)

With both of these problems I’ve tried the pinata * commands to no avail. Any idea what’s up with this/has anyone else encountered this? Also, any idea why pinata restart wouldn’t actually restart the daemon (I had to do it via the gui)?

Also, I’m on v1.11.beta10 (build 6662).
