podman-pod-top - Man Page

Display the running processes of containers in a pod

Synopsis

podman pod top [options] pod [format-descriptors]

Description

Display the running processes of containers in a pod. The format-descriptors are ps (1) compatible AIX format descriptors but extended to print additional information, such as the seccomp mode or the effective capabilities of a given process. The descriptors can either be passed as separated arguments or as a single comma-separated argument. Note that you can also specify options and or flags of ps(1); in this case, Podman will fallback to executing ps with the specified arguments and flags in the container.

Options

--help, -h
Print usage statement
--latest, -l
Instead of providing the pod name or ID, use the last created pod.

The latest option is not supported on the remote client.

Format Descriptors

Please refer to podman-top(1) for a full list of available descriptors.

Examples

By default, podman-pod-top prints data similar to ps -ef:

$ podman pod top b031293491cc
USER   PID   PPID   %CPU    ELAPSED             TTY   TIME   COMMAND
root   1     0      0.000   2h5m38.737137571s   ?     0s     top
root   8     0      0.000   2h5m15.737228361s   ?     0s     top

The output can be controlled by specifying format descriptors as arguments after the pod:

$ podman pod top -l pid seccomp args %C
PID   SECCOMP   COMMAND   %CPU
1     filter    top       0.000
1     filter    /bin/sh   0.000
