    NAME
           lxc-snapshot - Snapshot an existing container.
    
    SYNOPSIS
           lxc-snapshot
    {-n, --name name} [-c, --comment file]
    lxc-snapshot
    {-n, --name name} {-d, -destroy snapshot-name}
    lxc-snapshot
    {-n, --name name} {-L, --list } [-C, --showcomments ]
    lxc-snapshot
    {-n, --name name} {-r, -restore snapshot-name} [-N, --newname newname]
    
    DESCRIPTION
           lxc-snapshot creates, lists, and restores container snapshots.
    
           Snapshots are stored as snapshotted containers under the container's
           configuration path. For instance, if the container's configuration path
           is /var/lib/lxc and the container is c1, then the first snapshot will
           be stored as container snap0 under the path /var/lib/lxc/c1/snaps.  If
           /var/lib/lxcsnaps, as used by LXC 1.0, already exists, then it will
           continue to be used.
    
    OPTIONS
           -c,--comment comment_file
    	      Associate the comment in comment_file with the newly created
    	      snapshot.
    
           -d,--destroy snapshot-name
    	      Destroy the named snapshot. If the named snapshot is ALL, then
    	      all snapshots will be destroyed.
    
           -L,--list
    	      List existing snapshots.
    
           -C,--showcomments
    	      Show snapshot comments in the snapshots listings.
    
           -r,--restore snapshot-name
    	      Restore the named snapshot, meaning a full new container is
    	      created which is a copy of the snapshot.
    
           -N, --newname
    	      When restoring a snapshot, the last optional argument if not
    	      given explicitly via --newname is the name to use for the
    	      restored container. If the newname is identical to the original
    	      name of the container, then the original container will be
    	      destroyed and the restored container will take its place. Note
    	      that deleting the original snapshot is not possible in the case
    	      of aufs, overlayfs or zfs backed snapshots.
    
    COMMON OPTIONS
           These options are common to most of lxc commands.
    
           -?, -h, --help
    	      Print a longer usage message than normal.
    
           --usage
    	      Give the usage message
    
           -q, --quiet
    	      mute on
    
           -P, --lxcpath=PATH
    	      Use an alternate container path. The default is /var/lib/lxc.
    
           -o, --logfile=FILE
    	      Output to an alternate log FILE. The default is no log.
    
           -l, --logpriority=LEVEL
    	      Set log priority to LEVEL. The default log priority is ERROR.
    	      Possible values are : FATAL, CRIT, WARN, ERROR, NOTICE, INFO,
    	      DEBUG.
    
    	      Note that this option is setting the priority of the events log
    	      in the alternate log file. It do not have effect on the ERROR
    	      events log on stderr.
    
           -n, --name=NAME
    	      Use container identifier NAME.  The container identifier format
    	      is an alphanumeric string.
    
           --rcfile=FILE
    	      Specify the configuration file to configure the virtualization
    	      and isolation functionalities for the container.
    
    	      This configuration file if present will be used even if there is
    	      already a configuration file present in the previously created
    	      container (via lxc-create).
    
           --version
    	      Show the version number.
