You can use the "docker inspect" command to view the Configuration of a given Docker Container.

For example, Let's look at the configuration of the peer0.org1 container of the BYFN network.

$ docker inspect peer0.org1.example.com

[
    {
        "Id": "b812096b622be73f9bdbe0f096b9957e37a53c50746c75952a0b686cee928a19",

        ],
        "State": {
            "Status": "running",
            "Running": true,
            "Paused": false,
            "Restarting": false,
            "OOMKilled": false,
            "Dead": false,
            "Pid": 14252,

        },
        "Image": "sha256:8f3fb50f79a6ccf341cad11a6c0eb29eaffd5f60d9fc0d1ddfa8fe9c7b7bdb9e",
        "ResolvConfPath": "/var/lib/docker/containers/b812096b622be73f9bdbe0.../resolv.conf",
        "HostnamePath": "/var/lib/docker/containers/b812096b622be73f9bdbe0f0.../hostname",

        "MountLabel": "",

        "AppArmorProfile": "docker-default",
        "ExecIDs": null,

        "...": ""
    }
]

The output provides you a number of configuratoins about this Docker container. For example, the log file of this container is located at directory "/var/lib/docker/containers/b812096b622be73f9bdbe0f096b9957e37a53c50746c75952a0b686cee928a19".
