Docker unresponsive. Containers fail on network I/O


  • Windows 10 Enterprise 1809 LTSC
  • Docker Desktop
  • Three containers running with significant network I/O (nothing extreme)


  • Suddenly some containers start failing on network access.
  • Docker becomes completely unresponsive, e.g. Docker restart from system tray is impossible (or extremely slow)

Some remarkable lines in the log are:

  • Potential issue 1:

    [05:37:12.992][VpnKit ][Warning] vpnkit.exe: ARP table has no entry for
    [05:37:12.992][VpnKit ][Info ] vpnkit.exe: IP.output: could not determine link-layer address for local network ( ip
    [05:37:12.993][VpnKit ][Warning] vpnkit.exe: Could not find on the local network
    [05:37:12.993][VpnKit ][Warning] vpnkit.exe: Error sending TCP packet via IP: no route to destination: no response for IP on local network

  • Potential issue 2

    GoBackendProcess ][Warning] unable to inject event On:File Action:Removed Path:“C:” Path:“MyGateway” Path:“deployments” Path:“gw_opcua_cloud” Path:“brokerData” Path:“data” Path:“” InjectFilesystemEvent:true InvalidateCache:true for 10.0009904s

After reboot, this issue returns in a random (but limited) number of hours, at least daily.

For your information, I wanted to include the start of the docker log, till I have the impression that it is fully started. Unfortunately that exceeds the max size of this post. Let me know if you need more.
