DESCRIPTION

       lxc-ls list the containers existing on the system.

OPTIONS

       -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.

EXAMPLES

       lxc-ls --fancy
              list  all the containers, listing one per line along with its name, state, ipv4 and
              ipv6 addresses.

       lxc-ls --active -1
              list active containers and display the list in one column.

COMMON OPTIONS

       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 /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.
