Inconsistent waiting times for "Setup a remote Docker engine"

docker

#1

We see some inconsistent waiting times for “Setup a remote Docker engine”. It can vary from 2-3 seconds to 2 minute. This is affecting our build times.

Allocating a remote Docker Engine
Assigned Docker Engine request id: 209884
  waiting .................
Remote Docker engine created. Using VM 'default-1496142498598'
Created container accessible with:
  DOCKER_TLS_VERIFY=1
  DOCKER_HOST=tcp://35.190.143.149:2376
  DOCKER_CERT_PATH=/tmp/docker-certs047833258
  DOCKER_MACHINE_NAME=209884

I have also seen that sometimes it even times out. It looks like there just aren’t enough available docker engines sometimes.

Same here. Often getting this:

Allocating a remote Docker Engine
Assigned Docker Engine request id: 1280123
  waiting .......................

Got error while creating host: VM creation failed
We had an unexpected error preparing a VM for this build, potentially due to our infrastructure or cloud provider.  Please retry the builds in few minutes minutes
