OpenShift - View Pod events using oc describe or oc get

If you are not familiar with the oc command, refer to OpenShift - Getting Started with the oc command.

A pod runs on a node. Before issuing the oc describe pod command, issue the oc login command. The oc get pods command will return the list of pods in your selected project, like this.

oc get pods
. . .
mypod001    1/1     Running    0         8d
mypod002    1/1     Running    0         8d
mypod003    1/1     Running    0         8d


The oc describe pod/<pod name> command can be used to display the pod events. In this example, the events for mypod001 will be displayed.

oc describe pod/mypod001


Something like this should be returned.
