docker-container-pause - Pause all processes within one or more
docker container pause CONTAINER [CONTAINER...]
The docker container pause command suspends all processes in the
specified containers. On Linux, this uses the cgroups freezer.
Traditionally, when suspending a process the SIGSTOP signal is used,
which is observable by the process being suspended. With the cgroups
freezer the process is unaware, and unable to capture, that it is being
suspended, and subsequently resumed. On Windows, only Hyper-V
containers can be paused.
See the cgroups freezer documentation
subsystem.txt> for further details.
