singularity cache clean

Clean your local Singularity cache

Synopsis

This will clean your local cache (stored at $HOME/.singularity/cache if SINGULARITY_CACHEDIR is not set). By default only blob cache is cleaned, use ‘–all’ to clean the entire cache. Note: if you use Singularity as root, cache will be stored in ‘/root/.singularity/.cache’, to clean that cache, you will need to run ‘cache clean –all’ as root, or with ‘sudo’.
