<Notice>: Docker is not responding: waiting 0.5s

Expected behavior

Container can be pulled and run.

Actual behavior

Nothing happens

Information

  • the output of:
    • syslog -k Sender Docker on OSX
Apr 20 20:41:41 <hostname> Docker[20077] <Notice>: rx batching enabled (len=64)
Apr 20 20:41:43 <hostname> Docker[20072] <Notice>: Docker is not responding: waiting 0.5s
--- last message repeated 587 times ---
  • the output of:
    • docker pull hello-world on OSX
Using default tag: latest
  • host distribution and version: OSX 10.11.4

Steps to correct the behavior

  1. Quit docker for mac
  2. sudo ps aux | grep -i docker.
  3. Then sudo kill <pid> or sudo kill -9 <pid> for the results from the previous command
  4. Start docker for mac
  5. Settings | Reset to factory defaults

This happened to me just after upgrading to beta 8. Essentially every docker command that interacted with the xhyve VM just hung. Adding the --debug flag did not seem to help.

Same here after doing a fresh install. Reset did not work for me. I am unable to use Docker when migrating my machines. The reason is caused by docker:

In docker 1.11 the repo name
inspirationlabs/nodejs@4.x-slim
is not valid anymore and my running containers are based on that repo.

I’m getting this a lot as well, though restarting the command usually helps.

The log says:

The output from the command ends with

Error response from daemon: Bad response from Docker engine

I had to Reset to factory defaults to fix this.

I’m experiencing the same problem with Docker for Mac 1.12.3-beta30.1 (13946)

workaround (as mentioned previously) : resetting to factory settings
