Session information has not yet been published for this event.


One Line Summary

Alternative LXC user-space implementation


There is only one implementation of Linux containers user-space tools, called lxc. Currently lxc utility is very raw and somewhat incomplete, but it works

In OpenVZ, we have vzctl utility which is pretty highlevel, complete and documented, but it only works with OpenVZ kernel.

The aim is to discuss the modification of vzctl so it can be used for both openvz and mainline kernel.
