Remove old docker containers and docker images.
dcgc will remove stopped containers and unused images that are older than
"max age". Running containers, and images which are used by a container are
Maximum age can be specificied with any format supported by pytimeparse.
dcgc --max-container-age 3days --max-image-age 30days
Prevent images from being removed

--exclude-image Never remove images with this tag. May be specified more than once. --exclude-image-file Path to a file which contains a list of images to exclude, one image tag per line.
You also can use basic pattern matching to exclude images with generic tags.
user/repositoryA:* user/repositoryB:?.? user/repositoryC-*:tag
Prevent containers and associated images from being removed
dcgc also supports a container exclude list based on labels. If there are
stopped containers that you'd like to keep, then you can check the labels to
prevent them from being removed.
--exclude-container-label Never remove containers that have the label key=value. =value can be omitted and in that case only the key is checked. May be specified more than once.
You also can use basic pattern matching to exclude generic labels.
foo* com.docker.compose.project=test* com.docker*=*bar*
Stop containers that have been running for too long.
docker stop containers where the container name starts
with --prefix and it has been running for longer than --max-run-time.
dcstop --max-run-time 2days --prefix "projectprefix_"
