NAME

podman-stop - Stop one or more running containers

SYNOPSIS

podman stop [options] container

podman container stop [options] container

DESCRIPTION

Stops one or more containers. You may use container IDs or names as input. The --time switch allows you to specify the number of seconds to wait before forcibly stopping the container after the stop command is issued to the container. The default is 10 seconds. By default, containers are stopped with SIGTERM and then SIGKILL after the timeout. The SIGTERM default can be overridden by the image used to create the container and also via command line when creating the container.

OPTIONS

--all, -a

Stop all running containers. This does not include paused containers.

--cidfile=file

Read container ID from the specified file and stop the container. Can be specified multiple times.

--filter, -f=filter

Filter what containers are going to be stopped. Multiple filters can be given with multiple uses of the --filter flag. Filters with the same key work inclusive with the only exception being label which is exclusive. Filters with different keys always work exclusive.

Valid filters are listed below:

Filter

Description

id

[ID] Container’s ID (accepts regex)

name

[Name] Container’s name (accepts regex)

label

[Key] or [Key=Value] Label assigned to a container

exited

[Int] Container’s exit code

status

[Status] Container’s status: ‘created’, ‘exited’, ‘paused’, ‘running’, ‘unknown’

ancestor

[ImageName] Image or descendant used to create container

before

[ID] or [Name] Containers created before this container

since

[ID] or [Name] Containers created since this container

volume

[VolumeName] or [MountpointDestination] Volume mounted in container

health

[Status] healthy or unhealthy

pod

[Pod] name or full or partial ID of pod

network

[Network] name or full ID of network

--ignore, -i

Ignore errors when specified containers are not in the container store. A user might have decided to manually remove a container which would lead to a failure during the ExecStop directive of a systemd service referencing that container.

--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 is not available with the remote Podman client, including Mac and Windows (excluding WSL2) machines)

--time, -t=seconds

Seconds to wait before forcibly stopping the container
