SNMP discovered interfaces - mapping to description?

I have LIBRENMS monitoring my Unraid using SNMP. 


I was looking at the discovered ports, and I have a number of interfaces listed as vethxxxxxxx (7 characters) 

Assume these are for the docker containers, but wondered if there is a way to see which veth is assigned to which docker container, so I can lable these up in the SNMP software


I show 7 veth interfaces, but have 11 docker containers - 8 set to bridge and one of these is stopped at the moment, so im assuming its these bridged containers?


Just need to know which veth belongs to which docker container.

The names are dynamic and change from start to start of the containers

Ahh ok thanks. I did wonder if that happened. No point me doing what I’m doing then :)

cAdvisor does resolve them to the containers.  I guess you would have to investigate the docker command reference to figure that one out.
