Hi - I’ve recently started using the Kubernetes setup inside Docker for Mac Edge (Version 18.01.0-ce-mac48 (22004)) running on macOS High Sierra 10.12.6 (16G1114).
I tried minikube before this which lets the user pick from 5 hypervisors: virtualbox (default), vmwarefusion, kvm, hyperkit, or xhyve. I experienced issues running virtualbox containers for minikube, which I believe are due to custom kernel extensions running inside my corporate environment; however, there were no issues (so far) with DfM k8s.
I’m wondering what hypervisor DfM is using behind the scenes? Or is it something else like docker-machine?
Here’s where I’ve looked so far:
- Docker for Mac k8s quickstart and deploy guides
- I tried running a
docker ps with
Kubernetes > Show system containers enabled but didn’t see anything obvious there.
- Searching the Docker - Docker for Mac for “kubernetes”
Are there currently docs where I can read more info about how Docker for Mac k8s is working behind the scenes?
