Ultimately I'm trying to deploy prometheus alongside nginx as a reverse
proxy, and deploying both containers inside a pod seems easiest from a
networking perspective and also sensible logic since the two containers are
coupled into a single, functional unit.
As you noted, the upper blog post focuses on the container-case only. With
the next version of Podman, podman-generate-systemd ships with a --new flag
to generate such portable/shareable service files.
However, it does not yet support pods but we are working on it, which is
tracked in the upstream issue .
For the case of the pod, what PID does systemd track? Is it the
container? If so, how does that happen? `podman pod create` doesn't seem to
accept --conmon-pidfile args like `podman run` does.
I also tried using the output of `podman generate systemd` but that seems
tied to a specific pod instance. Ideally I'd find something more generic
like the pattern I extracted from the blog post above.
I suggest following the upstream issue  for updates. Supporting --new
for pods is definitely on our todo-list.
