Understanding Docker: part 10 – Clean & Purge

Understanding Docker can be difficult or time-consuming. In order to spread knowledge about Cloud technologies I started to create sketchnotes about Docker. I think it could be a good way, more visual, to explain Docker (and other technologies like Kubernetes and Istio).

We continue the series of Docker sketchnotes with a focus about how to clean and purge Docker data.

If you are interested, I published all the sketchnotes on Docker (and new ones!) to make a "book" of 93 pages: "Understanding Docker in a visual way".

As usual, if you like theses sketchnotes, you can follow me, and tell me what do you think. I will publish others sketchs shortly :-).

Along these lines I think I would also mention "docker system prune". I recently stumbled on that recently and it's a nice catch all for dangling unused containers, volumes and networks.

Hi,
thanks for your comment.
docker system prune is already written at the end of the sketchnote. It's my favorite command since 3 years.

with -a option you remove everything (included stopped/inactive resources too).

No problem
Thanks for your feedback 🙂
Hope you'll like past and future technical sketchnotes 😊
