vzlist(8) Containers vzlist(8)
vzlist - show various information about containers
vzlist [-a | -S] [-n] [-H] [-o name[,name...] | -1] [-s [-]name] [-h pattern] [-N pattern] [-d pattern] [CTID [CTID ...]]
vzlist -L | --list
This utility is used for listing containers and their parameters. By default only running containers are listed. If one or more CTIDs are
specified, only specified containers are displayed.
For the fields that can have many values (e.g. ip), all the values are displayed only for the last (i.e. leftmost) column; otherwise, only
the first value is shown.
List all containers.
List only not running containers (including the ones with status shown as mounted or suspended).
Display container names instead of hostnames.
Suppress displaying the header row.
-o, --output field[,field...]
Display only the specified fields (see Standard fields subsection below).
-1 Synonym for -H -octid, i.e. only show container IDs, one per line.
-s, --sort [-]field
Sort by the value of field (possible arguments are the same as for -o). The - before the field name means sorting in the reverse
List of CTs can be further filtered using the following options. For patterns one can use the same wildcards as in shell (i.e. *, ?, and
). Note: to avoid expansion of wildcards by the shell, one have to escape the pattern by either putting it into single quotes (like
'a*a') or by adding a backslash before the wildcard character (like a*a).
-h, --hostname pattern
List only containers whose hostnames matches the pattern.
-N, --name_filter pattern
List only containers whose names matches the pattern.
-d, --description pattern
List only containers with descriptions matching the pattern.
list all available format specifiers that can be used for both output (-o, --output) and the sorting order (-s, --sort).
For the user beancounter fields, if suffix is not specified, current usage (a.k.a. "held") value is show. One can also use the fol-
.f fail counter
For the disk quota fields, if suffix is not specified, current usage is shown. One can also use the following suffixes:
.s soft limit
.h hard limit
vzlist -o ctid,kmemsize,kmemsize.l -s kmemsize
Show CTIDs, kmemsize usage, and kmemsize limit for all running containers, sorted by the kmemsize usage.
Returns 0 upon success.
