    - "description":   container description (from ContextInfo)
    - "start_time":    time when container was started
    - "current_time":  current time in UTC
    - "uptime":        duration since container start time in milliseconds
    - "properties":    additional container properties (from ContextInfo)
    - "components":    descriptors of components registered in the container
