Docker Loses Ability to Connect (Multiple Times a Dah)

Expected behavior

That Docker continues to work, as in you can connect to the daemon.

Actual behavior

Randomly throughout the day Docker will suddenly timeout when attempting to run an operations, such as (docker-compose up, or docker ps)

The only solution I have found is to blow away all repos, and reset to factory defaults. REALLY REALLY bad if you’re travelling and don’t have good wifi.

This is an old issue, it’s been around for several beta updates now. This is still happening.



Steps to reproduce the behavior

Use docker for longer than a few hours on OSX.
