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
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.
