DESCRIPTION         top

       lxc-ls list the containers existing on the system.

OPTIONS         top

       -1     Show one entry per line. (default when /dev/stdout isn't a
              tty)

       --active
              List only active containers (same as --frozen --running).

       --frozen
              List only frozen containers.

       --running
              List only running containers.

       --stopped
              List only stopped containers.

       --defined
              List only defined containers.

       -f,--fancy
              Use a fancy, column-based output.

       -F,--fancy-format format
              Comma separated list of columns to show in the fancy output.
              The list of accepted and default fields is listed in --help.

       -g,--groups groups
              Comma separated list of groups the container must have to be
              displayed.  The parameter may be passed multiple times.

       --nesting=NUM
              Show nested containers. The number of nesting levels to be
              shown can be specified by passing a number as argument.

       --filter=regex
              The regular expression passed to lxc-ls will be applied to the
              container name. The format is a POSIX extended regular
              expression. It can also be given as additional argument
              without explicitly using --filter.

       lxc-ls --fancy
              list all the containers, listing one per line along with its
