As of Docker EE 17.03, the Docker daemon
stats endpoint incorrectly reports memory utilization as the sum of rss and the page cache allocated to the container.
A backport of the upstream fix (https://github.com/docker/cli/pull/80) for this issue is being tracked by internal engineering issue
orca/7241. Release of the fix for Docker Enterprise Edition is currently targeted for release with version 17.06. A backport to version 17.03 is also in progress.
