If the tty service has been configured and is available for the
container specified as parameter, this command will launch a console
allowing to log on the container.
The available tty are free slots taken by this command. That means if
the container has four ttys available and the command has been
launched four times each taking a different tty, the fifth command
will fail because no console will be available.
The command will connect to a tty. If the connection is lost or
broken, the command can be launched again and regain the tty at the
state it was before the disconnection.
A ttynum of 0 may be given to attach to the container's /dev/console
instead of its dev/tty<ttynum>.
A keyboard escape sequence may be used to disconnect from the tty and
quit lxc-console. The default escape sequence is <Ctrl+a q>.
-e, --escape escape character
Specify the escape sequence prefix to use instead of <Ctrl a>.
This may be given as '^letter' or just 'letter'. For example
to use <Ctrl+b q> as the escape sequence use -e '^b'.
-t, --tty ttynum
Specify the tty number to connect to or 0 for the console. If
not specified the next available tty number will be
automatically chosen by the container.
These options are common to most of lxc commands.
-?, -h, --help
Print a longer usage message than normal.
Give the usage message

Set log priority to LEVEL. The default log priority is ERROR.
Possible values are : FATAL, CRIT, WARN, ERROR, NOTICE, INFO,
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.
Use container identifier NAME. The container identifier
format is an alphanumeric string.
Specify the configuration file to configure the virtualization
and isolation functionalities for the container.
This configuration file if present will be used even if there
is already a configuration file present in the previously
created container (via lxc-create).
Show the version number.
