There is a particularly inefficient operation in the Docker API that we use from the Kubelet to get container status. The more containers you have the worse Docker behaves, so there is work ongoing to get container status in a different way. In addition, there are a few known inefficiencies inside the Kubelet that make the problem worse.
Fixing it a high priority for Kube in the 1.2 release and for Origin in 1.2
