podman-inspect(1)() podman-inspect(1)()

NAME

podman-inspect - Display a container, image, volume, network, or pod's configuration

SYNOPSIS

podman inspect [options] name [...]

DESCRIPTION

This displays the low-level information on containers and images identified by name or ID. By default, this will render all results in a JSON array. If the inspect type is all, the order of inspection is: containers, images, volumes, network, pods.
So, if a container has the same name as an image, then the container JSON will be returned, and so on.
If a format is specified, the given template will be executed for each result.

For more inspection options, see also podman-container-inspect(1), podman-image-inspect(1), podman-network-inspect(1), podman-pod-inspect(1), and podman-volume-inspect(1).

OPTIONS

--format, -f=format

Format the output using the given Go template. The keys of the returned JSON can be used as the values for the --format flag (see examples below).

--latest, -l

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

This option can be used to inspect the latest pod created when used with --type pod. (This option is not available with the remote Podman client, including Mac and Windows (excluding WSL2) machines, or when invoked as podman image inspect.)

--size, -s

In addition to normal output, display the total file size if the type is a container.

--type, -t=type

Return JSON for the specified type. Type can be 'container', 'image', 'volume', 'network', 'pod', or 'all' (default: all) (Only meaningful when invoked as podman inspect)
