"docker system df" doesn't add up to "docker info" data space

(Sousatou) #1

Hi. I’m encountering a storage shortage problem of my server.
I wanted to know which container using most storage space, so I ran “docker system df” command(and, “docker system df -f”),

# docker system df
TYPE                TOTAL               ACTIVE              SIZE                RECLAIMABLE
Images              132                 39                  28.38GB             21.17GB (74%)
Containers          81                  72                  240.2MB             4.498kB (0%)
Local Volumes       9                   5                   135.9MB             67.97MB (50%)
Build Cache                                                 0B                  0B

But, I noticed that the size(including with -f option) doesn’t add up to the output of docker info command:

# docker info

Where I can find hidden used spaces and reclaim them?
