Performance issues, CPU load

Expected behavior

When idle, the cpu load should not be above 15%.

Actual behavior

When idle, CPU load is above 100% at all times.

This does NOT happen when using dlite and the same docker-compose file.

I Have the same problem, the com.docker.xhyve process stay on 70%, but when i access the container, in my case it is a PHP Application, on HTTP port, the CPU goes high like in the picture bellow.

OS Version: OS X El Capitan. 10.11.4
Docker version: 1.11.1-Beta10 (build: 6662)

Using 13 containers at same time.
mysql, mongo, rabbitmq, redis, dnsmasq, elasticsearch, consul, php, registrator, nginx, haproxy x 2 and varnish.

Yeah, I am using 11 containers - five proprietary, one postgres, one django, one nginx, one redis and one memcached, and one RQ.

This is with nothing happening in any of the containers (that I know of). The system should be completely idle at this point.

Bump? Any updates to the performance issues? They still exist with beta18.

My idle python container is using up more CPU than my Windows 10 virtual machine. I believe it’s filesystem related - the python development server constantly watches the filesystem for sourcecode changes, and I think this is where the issue lies.

I reported a similar issue previously - and have just seen it again - cpu at 100% for idle.
