Action scripts

From CRIU

Jump to: navigation, search

With the --action-script command line option, CRIU can call your action scripts (also known as hooks) at various stages of dumping/restoring. The following hooks are available:

network-lock
request to lock a container network (used by Docker and LXC)
network-unlock
requested to unlock a container network (used by Docker and LXC)
post-dump
called when CRIU finished dumping tasks before unfreezing them
post-restore
called when CRIU has finished restoring tasks before unlocking the network
setup-namespaces
called when the root task is alive and new set of namespaces is created to set them up

CLI[edit]

These hooks are added with the --action-script shell-code-to-execute option. When called, the CRTOOLS_SCRIPT_ACTION environment is set to a value determining which type of action is performed.

RPC[edit]

In case of RPC, action scripts are implemented as notifications. Once CRIU service wants to execute a script, it sends an RPC message to the caller and waits for it to respond with criu_req message having notify_success = true.

Library[edit]

When using a library, one can set up a callback using the criu_set_notify routine.
