At a high level, Eraser has two main modes of operation: manual and automated.

Manual image removal involves supplying a list of images to remove; Eraser then deploys pods to clean up the images you supplied.

Automated image removal runs on a timer. By default, the automated process removes images based on the results of a vulnerability scan. The default vulnerability scanner is Trivy, but others can be provided in its place. Or, the scanner can be disabled altogether, in which case Eraser acts as a garbage collector -- it will remove all non-running images in your cluster.
