       adt-virt-lxd - autopkgtest virtualisation server using LXD


       adt-virt-lxd [options] image [-- extra lxc launch args...]


       adt-virt-lxd provides an autopkgtest virtualisation server using LXD. It creates temporary
       containers from the given LXD image name.

       Normally adt-virt-lxd will be invoked by adt-run.


       adt-virt-lxd  makes  no  strict  assumptions  about  the  image.  However,  it  is  highly
       recommended  that  the  image has eatmydata installed, or at least that gets installed via
       setup commands.

       For production use, it is recommended to use adt-build-lxd(1)  to  generate  an  optimized
       image  with autopkgtest's standard setup commands applied. Then these setup commands don't
       need to be applied for every test.  This is particularly necessary  if  you  want  to  use
       --apt-source  tests,  i.  e. use apt-get source in the test bed to download the package to
       test. Standard images from  do  not  have  "deb-src"  apt  sources  by


       -r remote | --remote=remote
              Run  container  on  given  remote  host instead of locally. See lxc remote list for
              available remotes.

       -d | --debug
              Enables debugging output.

       You can pass additional options to lxd launch: Anything after a -- gets appended  verbatim
       to lxc launch image.


       The  behaviour  of  adt-virt-lxd  is  as  described by the AutomatedTesting virtualisation
       regime specification.


       Show available images on the standard remote image server:

              lxc image list images:

       Run the tests of a local built directory tree on the current Debian  sid  image  from  the
       above images: remote:

              adt-run my-package/ --- lxd images:debian/sid/amd64

       Run  the  tests  in  a  local  built  directory  tree from a local LXD image desktop/i386,
       ensuring that eatmydata is installed:

              adt-run --setup-commands 'apt-get install -y eatmydata' dir/to/test/ \
                --- lxd desktop/i386

       Run the tests of the libpng package on the current  Debian  sid  image  from  the  images:
       remote on a remote armhf host:

              lxc remote add armhf-test
              adt-run --setup-commands=setup-testbed libpng --- \
                 lxd --remote armhf-test images:debian/sid/armhf

       Build a local image with standard setup commands pre-applied from a remote standard image,
       and run libpng test in it:

              adt-build-lxd images:ubuntu/xenial/amd64
              adt-run libpng --- lxd adt/ubuntu/xenial/amd64


       adt-run(1), adt-build-lxd(1), /usr/share/doc/autopkgtest/.
