NAME

       lxc-top - monitor container statistics

SYNOPSIS

       lxc-top [--help] [--delay delay] [--sort sortby] [--reverse]

DESCRIPTION

       lxc-top  displays  container statistics. The output is updated every delay seconds, and is
       ordered according to the sortby value given. lxc-top will display as  many  containers  as
       can  fit in your terminal. Press 'q' to quit. Press one of the sort key letters to sort by
       that statistic. Pressing a sort key letter a second time reverses the sort order.

OPTIONS

       -d, --delay delay
              Amount of time in seconds to delay  between  screen  updates.   The  default  is  3
              seconds.

       -s, --sort sortby
              Sort  the containers by name, cpu use, or memory use. The sortby argument should be
              one of the letters n,c,b,m,k to sort by name, cpu use, block I/O, memory, or kernel
              memory use respectively. The default is 'n'.

       -r, --reverse
              Reverse  the  default  sort order. By default, names sort in ascending alphabetical
              order and values sort in descending amounts (ie. largest value first).

EXAMPLE

       lxc-top --delay 1 --sort m
              Display containers, updating every second, sorted by memory use.

NOTES

       For performance reasons the kernel does not account kernel  memory  use  unless  a  kernel
       memory  limit  is set. If a limit is not set, lxc-top will display kernel memory use as 0.
       If no containers are being accounted, the KMem column will not be displayed. A  limit  can
       be set by specifying

             lxc.cgroup.memory.kmem.limit_in_bytes = number

       in your container configuration file, see lxc.conf(5).
