Docker daemon processes

I have found, that Docker daemon runs more than in one instance. I have got PID(13399) with service docker status, but there are also different PIDs. I have created only one container.

docker daemon processes

  • Upgrading Docker in Amazon linux AMI to 1.11.1
  • Docker Compose Dependencies
  • Permissions issue with Docker volumes
  • Dockerized jenkins is a good choice?
  • dotnet core on docker performance
  • Docker Swarm node only reachable from localhost
  • How I can edit files from my host under my username and from the container under docker user?
  • Docker build ubuntu:xenial issue
  • Docker-compose corrupted directory when shared a multiple file/directory in the same mounting point
  • How do I enable “debug” logging of the Docker daemon? (Ubuntu 16.04)
  • Backing up and restoring mysql database with Laravel/Docker
  • Permission issues with own built Docker container with Elasticsearch 2.1
  • One Solution collect form web for “Docker daemon processes”

    As you can see in the list the stats are basically the same (MEM, etc.).
    These processes are actually just forks from the original process.

    Forking is usually used to execute another application in the environment of the parent process (in this case: docker). I don’t know what docker specifically uses it for, there are many possibilities.

    Some more information on the topic forking.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
