podman-diff - Man Page

Inspect changes on a container or image's filesystem


podman diff [options] name

podman container diff [options] name


Displays changes on a container or image's filesystem.  The container or image will be compared to its parent layer



Alter the output into a different format.  The only valid format for diff is json.

--latest, -l

Instead of providing the container name or ID, use the last created container. If you use methods other than Podman to run containers such as CRI-O, the last started container could be from either of those methods.

The latest option is not supported on the remote client.


# podman diff redis:alpine
C /usr
C /usr/local
C /usr/local/bin
A /usr/local/bin/docker-entrypoint.sh
# podman diff --format json redis:alpine
