Usage:  docker stats [OPTIONS] [CONTAINER...]

Display a live stream of container(s) resource usage statistics

  -a, --all         Show all containers (default shows just running)
      --help        Print usage
      --no-stream   Disable streaming stats and only pull the first result

The docker stats command returns a live data stream for running containers. To limit data to one or more specific containers, specify a list of container names or ids separated by a space. You can specify a stopped container but stopped containers do not return any data.

If you want more detailed information about a container’s resource usage, use the /containers/(id)/stats API endpoint.
