NAME

       lxc-snapshot - Snapshot an existing container.

SYNOPSIS

       lxc-snapshot {-n, --name name} [-c, --comment file]
       lxc-snapshot {-n, --name name} {-L, --list } [-C, --showcomments ]
       lxc-snapshot {-n, --name name} {-r, -restore snapshot-name} [ newname]

DESCRIPTION

       lxc-snapshot creates, lists, and restores container snapshots.

       Snapshots  are  stored  as  snapshotted containers under a private configuration path. For
       instance, if the container's configuration path is /var/lib/lxc and the container  is  c1,
       then  the  first  snapshot  will  be  stored  as  container snap0 under configuration path
       /var/lib/lxcsnaps/c1.

OPTIONS

       -c,--comment comment_file
              Associate the comment in comment_file with the newly created snapshot.

       -L,--list
              List existing snapshots.

       -C,--showcomments
              Show snapshot comments in the snapshots listings.

       -r,--restore snapshot-name
              Restore the named snapshot, meaning a full new container is created which is a copy
              of the snapshot.

       newname
              When  restoring  a  snapshot, the last optional argument is the name to use for the
              restored container. If no name is  given,  then  the  original  container  will  be
              destroyed  and  the  restored container will take its place. Note that deleting the
              original snapshot is not possible in the case of  aufs,  overlayfs  or  zfs  backed
              snapshots.

COMMON OPTIONS

       These options are common to most of lxc commands.

       -?, -h, --help

       --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 :

              Note that this option is setting the priority of the events log  in  the  alternate
