sd_machine_get_class, sd_machine_get_ifindices - Determine the class and network interface indices of a locally running virtual machine or container
#include <systemd/sd-login.h> int sd_machine_get_class(const char* machine, char **class); int sd_machine_get_ifindices(const char* machine, int **ret_ifindices);
sd_machine_get_class() may be used to determine the class of a locally running virtual machine or container that is registered with systemd-machined.service(8). The string returned is either "vm" or "container". The returned string needs to be freed with the libc free(3) call after use. sd_machine_get_ifindices() may be used to determine the numeric indices of the network interfaces on the host that are pointing towards the specified locally running virtual machine or container. The vm or container must be registered with systemd-machined.service(8). The output parameter ret_ifindices may be passed as NULL when the output value is not needed. The returned array needs to be freed with the libc free(3) call after use.
On success, these functions return a non-negative integer. sd_machine_get_ifindices() returns the number of the relevant network interfaces. On failure, these calls return a negative errno-style error code. Errors Returned errors may indicate the following problems: -ENXIO The specified machine does not exist or is currently not running. -EINVAL An input parameter was invalid (out of range, or NULL, where that is not accepted). -ENOMEM Memory allocation failed.
These APIs are implemented as a shared library, which can be compiled and linked to with the libsystemd pkg-config(1) file.
