lava-lxc-mocker - mock LXC commands used by LAVA

lava-lxc-mocker is a collection of mocker scripts that mocks each of the LXC command that Linaro Automated Validation Architecture (LAVA) uses. It does not support all commands and options that lxc provides, but just the ones that LAVA uses. LAVA Test jobs using LXC can then be replicated in Docker with the help of lava-lxc-mocker.

  • lxc-attach
  • lxc-create
  • lxc-destroy
  • lxc-device
  • lxc-info
  • lxc-start
  • lxc-stop

LXC is Linux Containers userspace tools. lava-lxc-mocker does not use LXC. The commands provided by lava-lxc-mocker are simple shell scripts that use the same command names mocking some LXC commands. lava-lxc-mocker commands still need to be executed in the same sequence as a typical LXC operation. In particular, once a container has been created, that container needs to be destroyed to clean up the symlinks and other artifacts.
