NAME

podman-pod-top - 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 specify options and/or additionally options of ps(1); in this case, Podman will fallback to executing ps with the specified arguments and options in the container.

OPTIONS

--help, -h

Print usage statement

--latest, -l

Instead of providing the pod name or ID, use the last created pod. (This option is not available with the remote Podman client, including Mac and Windows (excluding WSL2) machines)

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
