Can I run docker system prune -a without downtime

I want to execute docker system prune -a to clean up space. Could someone please tell me if I can execute this command without docker-compose down (without removing the containers and downtime)

Docker documentation says:

Remove all unused containers, networks, images (both dangling and unreferenced), and optionally, volumes.

About -a option it says:

Remove all unused images not just dangling ones

So for sure this command does not produce a downtime. You can execute it without "docker-compose down".
