Cache the connectivity of live Docker Machine instances
What does this MR do?
This adds a connectivity cache for instances managed by Docker Machine, to work around API limits imposed by cloud providers.
Why was this MR needed?
This fixes #3296 (closed).
Are there points in the code the reviewer needs to double check?
I have only tested this on AWS, and I'm not sure if the behaviour makes sense for other cloud providers. In the case of AWS, this reduced the number of
DescribeInstances API calls by almost 80%.
