Use docker ps to get the container id.

Then docker inspect -f '{{ .Mounts }}' containerid

Example:

terminal 1

$ docker run -it -v /tmp:/tmp ubuntu:14.04 /bin/bash 

terminal 2

$ docker ps CONTAINER ID        IMAGE               COMMAND             CREATED              STATUS              PORTS               NAMES ddb7b55902cc        ubuntu:14.04        "/bin/bash"         About a minute ago   Up About a minute                       distracted_banach     $ docker inspect -f "{{ .Mounts }}" ddb7 map[/tmp:/tmp] 

The output

map[/tmp:/tmp]  

is, apparently, due to the use of the Go language to implement the docker command tools.

The docker inspect command without the -f format is quite verbose. Since it is JSON you could pipe it to python or nodejs and extract whatever you needed.

docker history <image name> will show the layers baked into an image. Unfortunately, docker history seems hobbled by its formatting and lack of options to choose what is displayed.

You can choose terse and verbose formats, via the --no-trunc flag.

With docker 1.10, you now have new commands for data-volume containers.
(for regular containers, see the next section, for docker 1.8+):


With docker 1.8.1 (August 2015), a docker inspect -f '{{ .Volumes }}' containerid would be empty!

You now need to check Mounts, which is a list of mounted paths like:

   "Mounts": [        {            "Name": "7ced22ebb63b78823f71cf33f9a7e1915abe4595fcd4f067084f7c4e8cc1afa2",            "Source": "/mnt/sda1/var/lib/docker/volumes/7ced22ebb63b78823f71cf33f9a7e1915abe4595fcd4f067084f7c4e8cc1afa2/_data",            "Destination": "/home/git/repositories",            "Driver": "local",            "Mode": "",            "RW": true        }    ], 

If you want the path of the first mount (for instance), that would be (using index 0):

docker inspect -f '{{ (index .Mounts 0).Source }}' containerid 

As Mike Mitterer comments below:

Pretty print the whole thing:

 docker inspect -f '{{ json .Mounts }}' containerid | python -m json.tool  

Or, as commented by Mitja, use the jq command.

docker inspect -f '{{ json .Mounts }}' containerid | jq

I actually googled this, and found my own answer :) My memory these days... And for those that dont know about it commandlinefu is a nice place to find and publish these kinda snippets.

List docker volumes by container.

docker ps -a --format '{{ .ID }}' | xargs -I {} docker inspect -f '{{ .Name }}{{ printf "\n" }}{{ range .Mounts }}{{ printf "\n\t" }}{{ .Type }} {{ if eq .Type "bind" }}{{ .Source }}{{ end }}{{ .Name }} => {{ .Destination }}{{ end }}{{ printf "\n" }}' {} 

Example output.

root@jac007-truserv-jhb1-001 ~/gitlab $ docker ps -a --format '{{ .ID }}' | xargs -I {} docker inspect -f '{{ .Name }}{{ printf "\n" }}{{ range .Mounts }}{{ printf "\n\t" }}{{ .Type }} {{ if eq .Type "bind" }}{{ .Source }}{{ end }}{{ .Name }} => {{ .Destination }}{{ end }}{{ printf "\n" }}' {} /gitlab_server_1      volume gitlab-data => /var/opt/gitlab     volume gitlab-config => /etc/gitlab     volume gitlab-logs => /var/log/gitlab  /gitlab_runner_1      bind /var/run/docker.sock => /var/run/docker.sock     volume gitlab-runner-config => /etc/gitlab-runner     volume 35b5ea874432f55a26c769e1cdb1ee3f06f78759e6f302e3c4b4aa40f3a495aa => /home/gitlab-runner

Show names and mount point destinations of volumes used by a container:

docker container inspect \  -f '{{ range .Mounts }}{{ .Name }}:{{ .Destination }} {{ end }}' \  CONTAINER_ID_OR_NAME 

This is compatible with Docker 1.13.

if you want to list all the containers name with the relevant volumes that attached to each container you can try this:

docker ps -q | xargs docker container inspect -f '{{ .Name }} {{ .HostConfig.Binds }}' 

example output:

/opt_rundeck_1 [/opt/var/lib/mysql:/var/lib/mysql:rw /var/lib/rundeck/var/storage:/var/lib/rundeck/var/storage:rw /opt/var/rundeck/.ssh:/var/lib/rundeck/.ssh:rw /opt/etc/rundeck:/etc/rundeck:rw /var/log/rundeck:/var/log/rundeck:rw /opt/rundeck-plugins:/opt/rundeck-plugins:rw /opt/var/rundeck:/var/rundeck:rw]

/opt_rundeck_1 - container name

[..] - volumes attached to the conatiner
