        <para>
            <command>lxc-autostart</command> processes containers
            with lxc.start.auto set. It lets the user start, shutdown,
            kill, restart containers in the right order, waiting the
            right time. Supports filtering by lxc.group or just run
            against all defined containers. It can also be used by
            external tools in list mode where no action will be performed
            and the list of affected containers (and if relevant, delays)
            will be shown.
        </para>

        <para>
            The <optional>-r</optional>, <optional>-s</optional>
            and <optional>-k</optional> options specify the action to perform.
            If none is specified, then the containers will be started.
            <optional>-a</optional> and <optional>-g</optional> are used to
            specify which containers will be affected. By default only
            containers without a lxc.group set will be affected.
            <optional>-t TIMEOUT</optional> specifies the maximum amount
            of time to wait for the container to complete the shutdown
            or reboot.

                        This option may be specified multiple times

        <title>Autostart and System Boot</title>

        <para>
            The <command>lxc-autostart</command> command is used as part of the
            LXC system service, when enabled to run on host system at bootup and at
            shutdown.  It's used to select which containers to start in what order
            and how much to delay between each startup when the host system boots.
        </para>

        <para>
            Each container can be part of any number of groups or no group at all.
            Two groups are special. One is the NULL group, i.e. the container does
            not belong to any group. The other group is the "onboot" group.
        </para>

        <para>
            When the system boots with the LXC service enabled, it will first
            attempt to boot any containers with lxc.start.auto == 1 that is a member
            of the "onboot" group. The startup will be in order of lxc.start.order.
            If an lxc.start.delay has been specified, that delay will be honored
            before attempting to start the next container to give the current
            container time to begin initialization and reduce overloading the host
            system. After starting the members of the "onboot" group, the LXC system
            will proceed to boot containers with lxc.start.auto == 1 which are not
            members of any group (the NULL group) and proceed as with the onboot
            group.
        </para>
