Why could my docker droplet started to be slow?

June 21, 2019 1.5k views
Docker Ubuntu 16.04

Suddenly the droplet started to build my docker image for ~40 minutes.
Locally or on another server, it builds for ~10 minutes. There were no configuration changes made. It just became too slow. What could go wrong or where to look for the issue?

P.S. I have not tried restarting the droplet yet, might restart help?

    I would suggest giving it a restart and trying the build again. It could be something that’s using a load of memory or CPU time unexpectedly that’s causing it to build slow or any number of other things.

    Let me know how it goes!
