Basic image management with ctr

Pulling images with ctr always requires a fully-qualified reference — in other words, you cannot omit the domain or the tag parts (the digest doesn’t have to be provided, though).

ctr image pull
ctr image pull

Listing local images

ctr image ls

Tag images

ctr image tag localhost:5000/iximiuz/test:latest

Push images

ctr image push localhost:5000/iximiuz/test:latest

Remove images

ctr image remove localhost:5000/iximiuz/test:latest

Run containers

ctr image pull

ctr run hello1

List containers

Back to basic container operations, you can list existing containers with:

ctr container ls

Inspect container

You can also inspect a container with ctr container info <container-id>:

Remove container

Finally, you can remove a container with ctr container remove . Let’s remove the hello1 container we’ve created earlier:

ctr container remove hello1
