"Setup a remote Docker engine" consistently takes 70+ seconds


This very similar thread suggests that the remote docker engine should be available in about 7 seconds "Setup a remote Docker engine" is slow ">90 secs"

But on my build it consistently takes 70+ seconds. This is aggravated by the fact that I need to repeat the step at the beginning of every job in my workflow. Is this the expected behaviour or am I doing something wrong?


Minor update, I discovered that the long setup times seem to only occur when use_layer_caching is enabled. I happened to remove that flag and the setup times were 2-3 seconds!

Unfortunately layer caching was saving me a lot of time as well so I have turned it back on. Any tips about how to have layer caching enabled but still fast setup times would be appreciated.
