File sharing extremely slow for lots of files


(Steffenbrem) #1

The volume mount is unusable to use for me. I need to share thousands of PHP files (it’s a Symfony2 web app) and the execution time is around 20 seconds. When running the same docker containers in a boot2docker image over NFS (VirtualBox) it performs in milliseconds. Any idea if something might be wrong with my setup? How would I setup a proper NFS connection between my host OS and a container running in the Docker app.
