Docker becomes unresponsive

Shortly after awakening my MacBook from sleep I semi-consistently end up with a not responding docker daemon.

Steps to reproduce the behavior

Sadly none, but definitely up for providing more logs when requested. Seems not to be limited to certain Dockerfiles.

I, too, am getting this now. My system hard-crashed this morning, after reboot, I can’t access Docker for Mac.

pinata restart and pinata doctor haven’t done anything and just report everything’s fine, even though it isn’t.

Thank you for collecting the different logs and uploading them to bugsnag for us.

We’ll look through them and see if we can identify what caused the issue.

I am having the same problem as well

FWIW I was running about 25 containers. This setup works perfectly fine with docker-machine. I am going back to docker-machine for now :disappointed_relieved:

I run into the issue again when lunching a semi-complicated compose stack.

Interestingly when using
screen ~/Library/Containers/com.docker.docker/Data/com.docker.driver.amd64-linux/tty and running docker ps inside the VM everything works and all containers are listed as expected.

docker ps on the mac is just timing out.

I looked into random logfiles inside the VM, but couldn’t see anything obvious, except several:
docker kern.err kernel: serial8250: too much work for irq4
in /var/log/messages, which might be related.

I’m having the same issue as @johanneswuerbach.

Same issue, was trying to get docker.local to resolve again. Steps to cause the issue were:

  1. Disabled VPN compatibility mode in Docker (found in another thread to do this for docker.local to work)
  2. Disconnected/reconnected form wifi and VPN
  3. Quit and restarted Docker via Finder
  4. Created a new shell session in Terminal

Now docker ps, docker images, all hang and pinata diagnose gives:

UPDATE:
Rebooted my Macbook and the error persists. Same pinata diagnose output as above.

I was able to resolve this by clicking “Reset to factory defaults” in the Docker Settings menu and letting it reinstall everything.

Same error for me with

serial8250: too much work for irq4

when doing some dmesg inside the screen of docker tty.

I am getting the same issue. I was able to screen into the Linux VM and docker is working perfect in side of there, but I was not able to ping outside of the VM. I am also not able to ping docker.local from the native OS.

here is the bridge when I do ifconfig:

I just tried clicking on enabling the VPN button and now it is working. I am not on a VPN, so I really don’t know why I would need to click on this.

I’ve been having the same problem - hangs when running docker - running pinata set network hostnet (vpn compatibility mode) fixed the issue… for now at least. I’m not running a vpn

Any updates on this issue? I am having the same problems here.
