Terminating a Docker container with 1 process in S6 Overlay takes > 10 sec

  docker, s6

I’m frustrated at the time it takes my container to shut down when using the S6 overlay service. As far as i understand, s6 should run as PID 1 and should issue the SIGTERM to all children processes (postfix) when you issue docker stop. I confirmed it is running as PID 1 but still takes 10sec to stop. I tried with Tini init system and it closes instantaneously. What am i doing wrong here?
