# Container events

Sematext Agent collects all sorts of container life-cycle, image, daemon, volume, plugin, and network events. If you're not interested in a certain event category, you can instruct the agent to ignore events that pertain to such a category via the CONTAINER_EVENTS_EXCLUDED environment variable. For example, to drop the volume and image events you would define the following environment variable:

-e CONTAINER_EVENTS_EXCLUDED=volume,image


Available event categories include:

• container
• image
• daemon
• volume
• plugin
• network

### Disabling events¶

To completely disable the event stream collector set the CONTAINER_EVENTS_ENABLED environment variable to false.
