NAME

       docker-volume-create - Create a volume

SYNOPSIS

       docker volume create [OPTIONS] [VOLUME]

DESCRIPTION

       Creates a new volume that containers can consume and store data in. If a name is not
       specified, Docker generates a random name. You create a volume and then configure the
       container to use it, for example:

              $ docker volume create hello
              hello
              $ docker run -d -v hello:/world busybox ls /world

       The mount is created inside the container's /src directory. Docker doesn't not support
       relative paths for mount points inside the container.

       Multiple containers can use the same volume in the same time period. This is useful if two
       containers need access to shared data. For example, if one container writes and the other
       reads the data.

Driver specific options

       Some volume drivers may take options to customize the volume creation. Use the -o or --opt
       flags to pass driver options:

              $ docker volume create --driver fake --opt tardis=blue --opt timey=wimey

       These options are passed directly to the volume driver. Options for different volume
       drivers may do different things (or nothing at all).

       The built-in local driver on Windows does not support any options.

       The built-in local driver on Linux accepts options similar to the linux mount command:

              $ docker volume create --driver local --opt type=tmpfs --opt device=tmpfs --opt o=size=100m,uid=1000

       Another example:

              $ docker volume create --driver local --opt type=btrfs --opt device=/dev/sda2

OPTIONS

       -d, --driver="local"
           Specify volume driver name

       -h, --help[=false]
           help for create

       --label=
           Set metadata for a volume

       -o, --opt=map[]
           Set driver specific options
