NAME         top

       lxc.conf - Configuration files for LXC.

DESCRIPTION         top

       LXC configuration is split in two parts. Container configuration
       and system configuration.

       The container configuration is held in the config stored in the
       container's directory.

       A basic configuration is generated at container creation time
       with the default's recommended for the chosen template as well as
       extra default keys coming from the default.conf file.

       That default.conf file is either located at /etc/lxc/default.conf
       or for unprivileged containers at ~/.config/lxc/default.conf.

       Details about the syntax of this file can be found in:

       The system configuration is located at /etc/lxc/lxc.conf or
       ~/.config/lxc/lxc.conf for unprivileged containers.

       This configuration file is used to set values such as default
       lookup paths and storage backend settings for LXC.

       Details about the syntax of this file can be found in:
