Hi Docker Family,
Good day to all. I am quite new for docker would appreciate any assistance on below query.
OS Version/build: RHEL
App version: 1.13.1
Docker Version Details, Docker Info, Main Storage Details, Inodes Storage Details
We are running one of our application called JAMA in docker containers. Last week we faced any issue of disk space full for var/lib/docker directory specially for var/lib/docker/overlay it seems like there are many containers here. When we check disk space by using df -h command we can see that the main storage it is sufficient enough but when we run df -ih which display the Inodes we notice that the Inodes was fully utilized. I believe the Inodes is for the metadata.
What Have We tried
- Tried removing dangling container
- Tried docker prune
Our Query for Docker Guru’s Out There
- Is there any way we can clean this directory?
- Or it is we need to increase the disk space for this directory every time we hit the threshold for the storage.
- Do we need to reinstall our docker to clear this space?
Any suggestion or insight are highly appreciated. Note that the current usage in the attache screenshot if after we increase another 20GB for this directory.
Thank you in advance
