NAME

       lxc-kill - Send a signal to the process 1 of the container.

SYNOPSIS

       lxc-kill --name=NAME SIGNUM

DESCRIPTION

       lxc-kill send the SIGNUM signal to the first process of the container.

       The SIGNUM is a numeric value, the signal name is not supported.

       If this command is used on an application container ran by lxc-execute,
       the lxc-init will receive the signal and will forward it to the process
       2  which  is the command specified in the command line. See lxc-execute
       (1).  Obviously the SIGKILL and SIGSTOP signals  are  not  able  to  be
       forwarded, (as per the signal(7) man page).

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

       -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.

EXAMPLES

       To send the signal 26 to the process pi1 running in container 123 :

             lxc-execute -n 123 -- pi1 -d 500000
             lxc-kill --name=123 26
