NAME

       docker-container-pause - Pause all processes within one or more containers

SYNOPSIS

       docker container pause CONTAINER [CONTAINER...]

DESCRIPTION

       The docker container pause command suspends all processes in the specified containers.  On
       Linux, this uses the cgroups freezer. Traditionally, when suspending a process the SIGSTOP
       signal is used, which is observable by the process being suspended.  With the cgroups
       freezer the process is unaware, and unable to capture, that it is being suspended, and
       subsequently resumed. On Windows, only Hyper-V containers can be paused.

       See the cgroups freezer documentation ⟨https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/cgroup-
       v1/freezer-subsystem.txt⟩ for further details.

       docker-container-unpause(1) to unpause all processes within a container.
