runc delete - delete any resources held by the container often used with detached containers


runc delete <container-id>

Where "<container-id>" is the name for the instance of the container.


For example, if the container id is "ubuntu01" and runc list currently shows the status of "ubuntu01" as "destroyed" the following will delete resources held for "ubuntu01" removing "ubuntu01" from the runc list of containers:

# runc delete ubuntu01
