Hi all, I’m new here so I apologize if this question or a similar question has been asked before. Doing a quick search through slack and online, I don’t see any helpful, so here goes: I’m trying to use Rancher Desktop with dockerd to handle a development environment for a project at the company I work for. The development environment consists of a Drupal container and a MariaDB container, and is spun up using docker compose. On my machine, everything works in acceptable timeframes. However, on the machine of the other dev on the project, everything takes nearly 10x as long. For example, clearing the Drupal cache using Drush via
docker exec
takes ~6s on my machine and ~50s on the other dev’s. We have very similar machines: we’re both on i7 Macs, although I’m on Catalina and he’s on Monterey. We both have 16GB RAM, and have Intel UHD Graphics 630, 1536 MB. The only hardware difference I notice is I have an additional Radeon Pro 555X, 4 GB. Is there an obvious reason this development environment (and docker as a whole) would be slower on the other dev’s machine? What steps can I take to narrow down the difference causing the performance issues?
