podman-pod-kill - Man Page

Kill the main process of each container in one or more pods


podman pod kill [options] pod ...


The main process of each container inside the pods specified will be sent SIGKILL, or any signal specified with option --signal.


--all, -a

Sends signal to all containers associated with a pod.

--latest, -l

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

The latest option is not supported on the remote client.

--signal, -s

Signal to send to the containers in the pod. For more information on Linux signals, refer to man signal(7).
