Very slow pull/download times

(Christopher Shelton) #1

So, I have been using Docker lately and loving it. The idea is really quite genius behind it all. That being said, I have been able to pull an image on the public registry (postgres, Ubuntu, redis, and such) very quickly - in a matter of a couple minutes. Today its taking 35 minutes minimum with it sometimes saying 305 hours (lol) for each pull.

I am developing on a MacBook pro using VirtualBox and Boot2Docker. I have tried restarting docker as well many times but to no avail. I’m not sure where the issue lies. Some help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

could you perhaps test the speed of the official registry on both your OSX box and sshed into the boot2docker vm
