NAME

podman-events - Monitor Podman events

SYNOPSIS

podman events [options]

DESCRIPTION

Monitor and print events that occur in Podman. Each event will include a timestamp, a type, a status, name (if applicable), and image (if applicable). The default logging mechanism is journald. This can be changed in containers.conf by changing the events_logger value to file. Only file and journald are accepted. A none logger is also available but this logging mechanism completely disables events; nothing will be reported by podman events.

By default, streaming mode is used, printing new events as they occur. Previous events can be listed via --since and --until.

The container event type will report the follow statuses:

  • attach

  • checkpoint

  • cleanup

  • commit

  • create

  • exec

  • export

  • import

  • init

  • kill

  • mount

  • pause

  • prune

  • remove

  • restart

  • restore

  • start

  • stop

  • sync

  • unmount

  • unpause

The pod event type will report the follow statuses:

  • create

  • kill

  • pause

  • remove

  • start

  • stop

  • unpause

The image event type will report the following statuses:

  • prune

  • pull

  • push

  • remove

  • save

  • tag

  • untag

The system type will report the following statuses:

  • refresh

  • renumber

The volume type will report the following statuses:

  • create

  • prune

  • remove

OPTIONS

--help

Print usage statement.

--format

Format the output to JSON Lines or using the given Go template.

--filter=filter

Filter events that are displayed. They must be in the format of “filter=value”. The following filters are supported:

  • container=name_or_id

  • event=event_status (described above)

  • image=name_or_id

  • label=key=value

  • pod=name_or_id

  • volume=name_or_id

  • type=event_type (described above)

In the case where an ID is used, the ID may be in its full or shortened form.

--no-trunc

Do not truncate the output (default true).

--since=timestamp

Show all events created since the given timestamp

--until=timestamp

Show all events created until the given timestamp

The since and until values can be RFC3339Nano time stamps or a Go duration string such as 10m, 5h. If no since or until values are provided, only new events will be shown.
