podman pod logs [options] pod
The podman pod logs command batch-retrieves whatever logs are present with all the containers of a pod. Pod logs can be filtered by container name or id using flag -c or --container if needed.
Note: Long running command of
podman pod log with a
--follow needs to be reinvoked if new container is added to the pod dynamically otherwise logs of newly added containers would not be visible in log stream.
Output the containers with different colors in the log.
podman pod logs retrieves logs for all the containers available within the pod differentiate by field
container. However there are use-cases where user would want to limit the log stream only to a particular container of a pod for such cases
-c can be used like
podman pod logs -c ctrNameorID podname.
Follow log output. Default is false.
Note: If you are following a pod which is removed by
podman pod rm or removed on exit (
podman run --rm ...), then there is a chance that the log file will be removed before
podman pod logs reads the final content.
Instead of providing the pod name or id, get logs of the last created pod. (This option is not available with the remote Podman client, including Mac and Windows (excluding WSL2) machines)
Output the container names instead of the container IDs in the log.
Show logs since TIMESTAMP. The --since option can be Unix timestamps, date formatted timestamps, or Go duration strings (e.g. 10m, 1h30m) computed relative to the client machine's time. Supported formats for date formatted time stamps include RFC3339Nano, RFC3339, 2006-01-02T15:04:05, 2006-01-02T15:04:05.999999999, 2006-01-02Z07:00, and 2006-01-02.
Output the specified number of LINES at the end of the logs. LINES must be an integer. Defaults to -1, which prints all lines
Show timestamps in the log outputs. The default is false
Show logs until TIMESTAMP. The --until option can be Unix timestamps, date formatted timestamps, or Go duration strings (e.g. 10m, 1h30m) computed relative to the client machine's time. Supported formats for date formatted time stamps include RFC3339Nano, RFC3339, 2006-01-02T15:04:05, 2006-01-02T15:04:05.999999999, 2006-01-02Z07:00, and 2006-01-02.
