NAME         top

       lxc-info - query information about a container

SYNOPSIS         top

       lxc-info -n name [ -c KEY ]  [ -s ]  [ -p ]  [ -i ]  [ -S ]  [ -H ]

DESCRIPTION         top

       lxc-info queries and shows information about a container.

OPTIONS         top

       -c, --config KEY
              Print a configuration key from the container. This option may
              be given multiple times to print out multiple key = value
              pairs.

       -s, --state
              Just print the container's state.

       -p, --pid
              Just print the container's pid.

       -i, --ips
              Just print the container's IP addresses.

       -S, --stats
              Just print the container's statistics.  Note that for
              performance reasons the kernel does not account kernel memory
              use unless a kernel memory limit is set. If a limit is not
              set, lxc-info will display kernel memory use as 0. A limit can
              be set by specifying

                          lxc.cgroup.memory.kmem.limit_in_bytes = number

              in your container configuration file, see lxc.conf(5).

       -H, --no-humanize
              Print the container's statistics in raw, non-humanized form.
              The default is to print statistics in humanized form.

COMMON OPTIONS         top

       These options are common to most of lxc commands.

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

       --usage
              Give the usage message

       -q, --quiet
              mute on

       -P, --lxcpath=PATH
              Use an alternate container path. The default is
              /usr/local/var/lib/lxc.

       -o, --logfile=FILE
              Output to an alternate log FILE. The default is no log.

       -l, --logpriority=LEVEL
              Set log priority to LEVEL. The default log priority is ERROR.
              Possible values are : FATAL, CRIT, WARN, ERROR, NOTICE, INFO,
              DEBUG.

              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.

       -n, --name=NAME
              Use container identifier NAME.  The container identifier
              format is an alphanumeric string.

       --rcfile=FILE
              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).

       --version
              Show the version number.

EXAMPLES         top

       lxc-info -n foo
              Show information for foo.

       lxc-info -n 'ubuntu.*'
              Show information for all containers whose name starts with
              ubuntu.

       lxc-info -n foo -c lxc.network.0.veth.pair
              prints the veth pair name of foo.
