NAME

vzeventd - the OpenVZ events daemon.

SYNOPSIS

vzeventd [-v] [-d]

DESCRIPTION

This daemon takes care of events sent by the OpenVZ kernel (via a netlink socket) and performs required actions associated with those events, by running specific scripts. Every event received contains an event name and a container ID.
For every known event, the event script /usr/lib/vzctl/vzctl/scripts/vzevent- event_name is executed, with container ID being passed to the script as VEID environment variable. Not-existent events scripts are ignored. All unknown events are ignored but logged.
The following events are recognized:
