Tips&Tricks

Find the container id of a running process

Since it is always an issue to find out to which LXC container some process belongs, a small helper script has been created which helps with finding this ID.

Example run:

root@coherence:~# find_pct_by_pid.sh 12088
105
root@coherence:~# find_pct_by_pid.sh 666
Error: No /proc entry found for 666
root@coherence:~# find_pct_by_pid.sh 1
Warning: 1 is not running inside an LXC container

Script:

#!/bin/bash

# Check if we are called correctly
if [[ ${#} -ne 1 ]]; then
  echo "Usage: $(basename ${0}) <pid>"
  exit 1
fi
PID=${1}

# Check if the process is actually running
if [[ ! -d "/proc/${PID}" ]]; then
  echo "Error: No /proc entry found for ${PID}"
  exit 1
fi

# Check if we are dealing with an LXC container
CPUSET="$(head -1 /proc/${PID}/cpuset)"
echo "${CPUSET}" | grep -q lxc
if [[ ${?} -ne 0 ]]; then
  echo "Warning: ${PID} is not running inside an LXC container"
  exit 0
fi

PCT_ID="$(echo ${CPUSET} | cut -d/ -f3)"

echo "${PCT_ID}"
