containerd (1) - Linux Man Pages

containerd is a high performance container runtime whose daemon can be started by using this command. If none of the config, publish, or help commands are specified, the default action of the containerd command is to start the containerd daemon in the foreground.

A default configuration is used if no TOML configuration is specified or located at the default file location. The containerd config command can be used to generate the default configuration for containerd. The output of that command can be used and modified as necessary as a custom configuration.
