       lxc-monitor - monitor the container state


       lxc-monitor [-n name] [-Q name]


       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


       -Q, --quit
              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.

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

              Give the usage message

       -q, --quiet
              mute on

       -P, --lxcpath=PATH
              Use an alternate container path. The default is /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,

              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.


       lxc-monitor -n foo
              will monitor the different states for container foo.

       lxc-monitor -n 'foo|bar'
              will monitor the different states for container foo and bar.

       lxc-monitor -n '[f|b].*'
              will  monitor  the  different states for container with the name
              beginning with letter 'f' or 'b'.

       lxc-monitor -n '.*'
              will monitor the different states for all containers.


       The container was not found
              The specified container was not created  before  with  the  lxc-
              create command.
