NAME

podman-machine-list - List virtual machines

SYNOPSIS

podman machine list [options]

podman machine ls [options]

DESCRIPTION

List Podman managed virtual machines.

Podman on MacOS and Windows requires a virtual machine. This is because containers are Linux - containers do not run on any other OS because containers' core functionality are tied to the Linux kernel. Podman machine must be used to manage MacOS and Windows machines, but can be optionally used on Linux.

Rootless only.

OPTIONS

--format=format

.CPUs Number of CPUs
.Created Time since VM creation
.Default Is default machine
.DiskSize Disk size of machine
.LastUp Time machine was last up
.LastUp Time since the VM was last run
.Memory Allocated memory for machine
.Name VM name
.Running Is machine running
.Stream Stream name
.VMType VM type
.Port SSH Port to use to connect to VM
.RemoteUsername VM Username for rootless Podman
