podman-pod-logs - Man Page

Displays logs for pod with one or more containers

Synopsis

podman pod logs [options] pod

Description

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 -f or --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.

Options

--container, -c

By default podman pod logs retrives 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, -f

Follow log output.  Default is false.

Note: If you are following a pod which is removed podman pod rm, then there is a chance the the log file will be removed before podman pod logs reads the final content.

--latest, -l

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)

--since=TIMESTAMP

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.

--until=TIMESTAMP

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.

--tail=LINES

Output the specified number of LINES at the end of the logs.  LINES must be an integer.  Defaults to -1, which prints all lines

--timestamps, -t

Show timestamps in the log outputs.  The default is false

podman pod logs -t podIdorName

To view logs of a specific container on the pod

podman pod logs -c ctrIdOrName podIdOrName

To view all pod logs:

podman pod logs -t --since 0 myserver-pod-1

To view a pod's logs since a certain time:

podman pod logs -t --since 2017-08-07T10:10:09.055837383-04:00 myserver-pod-1

To view a pod's logs generated in the last 10 minutes:

podman pod logs --since 10m myserver-pod-1

To view a pod's logs until 30 minutes ago:
