lower latency / boot times for light apps? #497
Does anyone else see a similar latency to below? I've tested on two machines, and this was the faster.
I'm interested in running 'light' applications like htop, which I use frequently and a 1 second latency could just add that little bit of friction to my day. So I'm interested in getting this number down a bit. And it'd obviously be handy for the existing stuff in this repo. But before I really go down a rabbit hole (e.g. different container runtimes?), I'd like to check it's not just me, or this isn't a dumb question (sorry, not much docker experience).
FYI other things I played with (which I might as well add here):
@tianon - I'm more interested in the specific objective of this repo (e.g. using containers for sandboxing [potentially lightweight] apps where I may want low latency). I guess the distinction is that I don't actually mind whether it's Docker or not. This is also just a general question here to see if it's a common problem, and whether there's an obvious solution - if not, it may mean resorting to some of the sources you mentioned.
Also - I figure it's probably a useful thing to leave in this repo for others who may have similar "should I try this for application X?" questions. (I couldn't find anything on it when I looked.) Happy to close if you don't think it's productive.
