Run in detached mode aka run in background


  • Removes the container and associated resources like volumes when the container stops running
  • Useful for temporary containers


Maps the host port to the container port

docker run -p host_port:container_port image_name


  • Provide a custom name for a container when you start it



  • Granting that container the ability to lock Shared Memory segments in the host’s IPC Namespace
  • Allows the container to lock shared memory in a way that prevents it from being paged out to Disk, potentially improving performance for applications that rely heavily on shared memory operations.

Docker Volume


  • Used to mount a Volume inside a Docker container
  • It allows you to create a link between a directory or file on your host system (the system running Docker) and a directory or file inside the container
  • This enables data to be shared and persisted between the host and the container, even after the container is stopped and removed
# Mounting 2 volume, the config.yml file & .aws folder
docker run \ 
  -v /home/xy241/Dropbox/RAid/aws_nuke/config.yml:/home/aws-nuke/config.yml \ 
  -v /home/xy241/.aws:/home/aws-nuke/.aws

Append :ro at the end of -v to make the host machine read-only inside the Docker Container

Add extra -v to specify the files & folders that we don't want to sync from Docker Container to host machine
