Running CTOP in Docker

Running CTOP in Docker

CTOP is a nice command line tool to look at running Docker containers. To prevent from having to install the ctop binary locally, and always have the latest version, I do run it inside docker. For easy execution, I created a (Linux) bash alias:

alias ctop='docker run --rm -ti --name=ctop --volume /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock:ro quay.io/vektorlab/ctop:latest -s cpu'
Code language: Bash (bash)

Just add it to your .bashrc (or some other file you load when opening a new shell, like ~/.bash_aliases). From then on, you can just type ctop as command line command, and it will launch the ctop in docker for you.

Example run:
