Remote docker resources

In the documentation for Running Docker Commands, the Specifications for the remote docker environment are listed as consisting only of a dual-core system with 8 GB of RAM.

The configuration reference lists multiple resource classes for Docker executor.

Are these pages referring to different features?

After some experimentation, it appears my confusion stems from the different resources used in docker build within a remote docker executor. The resource_class applies to the steps defined for the job as one would expect, but when the step performs a docker build, that image is built with the fixed dual-core resources.

Hi @stackptr! Thank you for the update. Do you think clarifying the docs would help?

Yes, I think it would be helpful to note that resource_class does not apply for the isolated context of a remote docker environment.
