NAME
systemd-detect-virt - Detect execution in a virtualized environment SYNOPSIS
systemd-detect-virt [OPTIONS...] DESCRIPTION
systemd-detect-virt detects execution in a virtualized environment. It identifies the virtualization technology and can distinguish full VM virtualization from container virtualization. When executed without --quiet will print a short identifier for the detected virtualization technology. The following technologies are currently identified: qemu, kvm, vmware, microsoft, oracle, xen, bochs, chroot, uml, openvz, lxc, lxc-libvirt, systemd-nspawn. If multiple virtualization solutions are used, only the "innermost" is detected and identified. That means if both VM virtualization and container virtualization are used in conjunction, only the latter will be identified (unless --vm is passed). OPTIONS
The following options are understood: -h, --help Prints a short help text and exits. --version Prints a short version string and exits. -c, --container Only detects container virtualization (i.e. shared kernel virtualization). -v, --vm Only detects VM virtualization (i.e. full hardware virtualization). -q, --quiet Suppress output of the virtualization technology identifier. EXIT STATUS
If a virtualization technology is detected, 0 is returned, a non-zero code otherwise. SEE ALSO
