Docker - docker volume command (create a volume)

This assumes you have installed Docker on Linux and Docker is running. The following command creates a docker volume named foo-volume.

docker network create foo-volume


The docker volume ls command can be used to display the docker volumes.

docker volume ls


Which should return something like this.

local         foo-volume


The docker volume inspect command can be used to display the configuration of the volume.

docker volume inspect foo-volume


Which should return JSON something like this. Notice in this example that mountpoint is /var/lib/docker/volumes/foo-volume/_data. This correlates to a directory on the host operating system.
