NAME

podman-wait - Wait on one or more containers to stop and print their exit codes

SYNOPSIS

podman wait [options] container […]

podman container wait [options] container […]

DESCRIPTION

Waits on one or more containers to stop. The container can be referred to by its name or ID. In the case of multiple containers, Podman will wait on each consecutively. After all specified containers are stopped, the containers’ return codes are printed separated by newline in the same order as they were given to the command.

OPTIONS

–condition=state Condition to wait on (default “stopped”)

–help, -h

Print usage statement

–interval, -i=duration Time interval to wait before polling for completion. A duration string is a sequence of decimal numbers, each with optional fraction and a unit suffix, such as “300ms”, “-1.5h” or “2h45m”. Valid time units are “ns”, “us” (or “µs”), “ms”, “s”, “m”, “h”. Time unit defaults to “ms”.

–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.

The latest option is not supported on the remote client.
