NAME

       docker-events - Get real time events from the server

SYNOPSIS

       docker events [--help] [-f|--filter[=[]]] [--since[=SINCE]] [--until[=UNTIL]]

DESCRIPTION

       Get event information from the Docker daemon. Information can include historical
       information and real-time information.

       Docker containers will report the following events:

              attach, commit, copy, create, destroy, die, exec_create, exec_start, export, kill, oom, pause, rename, resize, restart, start, stop, top, unpause

       and Docker images will report:

              delete, import, pull, push, tag, untag

OPTIONS

       --help
         Print usage statement

       -f, --filter=[]
          Provide filter values (i.e., 'event=stop')

       --since=""
          Show all events created since timestamp

       --until=""
          Stream events until this timestamp

       The --since and --until parameters can be Unix timestamps, date formatted timestamps, or
       Go duration strings (e.g. 10m, 1h30m) computed relative to the client machine’s time. If
       you do not provide the --since option, the command returns only new and/or live events.
       Supported formats for date formatted time stamps include RFC3339Nano, RFC3339,
       2006-01-02T15:04:05, 2006-01-02T15:04:05.999999999, 2006-01-02Z07:00, and 2006-01-02. The
       local timezone on the client will be used if you do not provide either a Z or a +-00:00
       timezone offset at the end of the timestamp.  When providing Unix timestamps enter
       seconds[.nanoseconds], where seconds is the number of seconds that have elapsed since
       January 1, 1970 (midnight UTC/GMT), not counting leap seconds (aka Unix epoch or Unix
       time), and the optional .nanoseconds field is a fraction of a second no more than nine
       digits long.

EXAMPLES

Listening for Docker events

       After running docker events a container 786d698004576 is started and stopped (The
       container name has been shortened in the output below):

              # docker events
              2015-01-28T20:21:31.000000000-08:00 59211849bc10: (from whenry/testimage:latest) start
              2015-01-28T20:21:31.000000000-08:00 59211849bc10: (from whenry/testimage:latest) die
              2015-01-28T20:21:32.000000000-08:00 59211849bc10: (from whenry/testimage:latest) stop

Listening for events since a given date

       Again the output container IDs have been shortened for the purposes of this document:

              # docker events --since '2015-01-28'
              2015-01-28T20:25:38.000000000-08:00 c21f6c22ba27: (from whenry/testimage:latest) create
              2015-01-28T20:25:38.000000000-08:00 c21f6c22ba27: (from whenry/testimage:latest) start
              2015-01-28T20:25:39.000000000-08:00 c21f6c22ba27: (from whenry/testimage:latest) create
              2015-01-28T20:25:39.000000000-08:00 c21f6c22ba27: (from whenry/testimage:latest) start
              2015-01-28T20:25:40.000000000-08:00 c21f6c22ba27: (from whenry/testimage:latest) die
              2015-01-28T20:25:42.000000000-08:00 c21f6c22ba27: (from whenry/testimage:latest) stop
              2015-01-28T20:25:45.000000000-08:00 c21f6c22ba27: (from whenry/testimage:latest) start
              2015-01-28T20:25:45.000000000-08:00 c21f6c22ba27: (from whenry/testimage:latest) die
              2015-01-28T20:25:46.000000000-08:00 c21f6c22ba27: (from whenry/testimage:latest) stop

       The following example outputs all events that were generated in the last 3 minutes,
       relative to the current time on the client machine:

              # docker events --since '3m'
              2015-05-12T11:51:30.999999999Z07:00  4386fb97867d: (from ubuntu-1:14.04) die
              2015-05-12T15:52:12.999999999Z07:00  4386fb97867d: (from ubuntu-1:14.04) stop
              2015-05-12T15:53:45.999999999Z07:00  7805c1d35632: (from redis:2.8) die
              2015-05-12T15:54:03.999999999Z07:00  7805c1d35632: (from redis:2.8) stop

       If you do not provide the --since option, the command returns only new and/or live events.
