Container process on host machine

I’m using Docker and would like to identify which processes are running on containers.
So, I run this command on my container, which will uses nearly 100 % CPU.

md5sum /dev/urandom

After that I’ve checked processes using htop on host machine.

  • Docker compose mysql reachable on port 3306
  • How do I turn sendfile off in a docker instance
  • Redis memory usage, ZSET and docker
  • Give access to Docker Swarm cluster
  • Docker wont build anymore after accedently trying to delete windowsfilter folder
  • Accessing host usb device in docker for windows
  • enter image description here

    How can I identify, that this command is running inside a container instead of host?

  • folder permissions docker-osx-dev
  • docker4mac shared folder speed too slow
  • How to run docker to other server machine
  • how to assign a group of logical Linux interfaces to a Docker container?

    As mentioned in “Docker Processes Shown on Host Process List”, you can also run top then press shift+f and select the nsPID and nsUSER

    The nsPID should match docker inspect --format='{{ .State.Pid }}' <acontainer>
    (as in this example, inspired by the pipework script)

    You should be able to add the cgroup column which identifies the container the process is running under.

    • Press F2
    • Setup
    • Columns
    • Choose CGROUP
    • Press F10 to save

    Another option would be to run a command on the container:

    docker exec <container> ps ax

    This should list the processes running in the container.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
