lxc-monitor - monitor the container state


lxc-monitor [-n name] [-Q name]


lxc-monitor monitors the state of containers. The name argument may be used to specify
which containers to monitor. It is a regular expression, conforming with posix2, so it is
possible to monitor all the containers, several of them or just one. If not specified,
name will default to '.*' which will monitor all containers in lxcpath.

The -P, --lxcpath=PATH option may be specified multiple times to monitor more than one
container path. Note however that containers with the same name in multiple paths will be
indistinguishable in the output.


-Q, --quit
Ask the lxc-monitord daemon on each given lxcpath to quit. After receiving this
command, lxc-monitord will exit immediately as soon as it has no clients instead of
waiting the normal 30 seconds for new clients. This is useful if you need to
unmount the filesystem lxcpath is on.


These options are common to most of lxc commands.

-?, -h, --help
Print a longer usage message than normal.

Give the usage message

-q, --quiet

-P, --lxcpath=PATH

Note that this option is setting the priority of the events log in the alternate
log file. It do not have effect on the ERROR events log on stderr.

Show the version number.
