How to tell which docker apps are filling up my docker storage?

Recommended Posts

My docker recently failed to restart and thanks to the forum pointing out my docker storage usage I was able to temporarily resolve the issue by making my image larger, but I want to understand which docker(s?) is taking up most of the space, maybe I have some poorly configured settings? Is there somewhere in the gui or a terminal command I can see which dockers are using how much?

image.png.7bbdc941d19142bbb0b8f1f6d8a90b6d.png in the Docker tab will list the size of each container. Look for ones that are unusually large.  Some are 1-3GB normally so every large size container is not necessarily a problem.   If in doubt, ask in the specific container support thread.

Doh... I shoulda seen that.

I took a look and well, have a follow up question.

My docker.img was 20gb and apparently 100% full so I increased it to 30GB,  But when I look at container size all the dockers look somewhat normal in terms of size, but the total is 10.9GB? Am i missing something?

I'm having the same issue.  Looking at the container sizes, the total doesn't exceed 3.1GB and the docker image size is set to 38GB, yet I still get regular warnings of docker image use > 98%.  Not always, granted, but at least a few times a week. 


Any ideas what might be causing the image usage to be so high?
