Docker kill


Docker kill

docker kill kills one or more running Docker containers by names or IDs.

The basic usage is:

docker kill mycontainer

Or with container ID:

docker kill 769b9341d937

To kill more than one container, container names or IDs must be added with a whitespace character between them:

docker kill mycontainer mysecondcontainer mythirdcontainer

You can specify which signal is emitted to the container using the --signal (or -s) option. For example, you can reload your nginx container configuration using:

docker kill -s HUP container_name
