Prune Docker Images Daily
I am looking at keeping old images cleaned up from a VM that I have access to. I'm looking at keeping storage space minimal is because there is low hard disk space. Let's do this from a daily crontab.
Create a file in /etc/crontab.daily
In the contents of the file we will insert the following.
#!/bin/bash podman system prune -af --filter "until=$((30*24))h"
Allow the file to be executed.
chmod +x /etc/crontab.daily/docker-prune
NOTE: I use Podman instead of Docker but the command above is interchangeable in this instance.
