.TH LSNS 8 "December 2015" "util-linux" "System Administration"
.SH NAME
lsns \- list namespaces
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B lsns
[options]
.RI [ namespace ]

.SH DESCRIPTION
.B lsns
lists information about all the currently accessible namespaces or about the
given \fInamespace\fP.  The \fInamespace\fP identifier is an inode number.

The default output is subject to change.  So whenever possible, you should
avoid using default outputs in your scripts.  Always explicitly define expected
columns by using the \fB\-\-output\fR option together with a columns list in
environments where a stable output is required.

\fBNSFS\fP column, printed when \fBnet\fP is specified for
\fB\-\-type\fR option, is special; it uses multi-line cells.
Use the option \fB\-\-nowrap\fR is for switching to "," separated single-line
representation.

Note that \fBlsns\fR reads information directly from the /proc filesystem and
for non-root users it may return incomplete information.  The current /proc
filesystem may be unshared and affected by a PID namespace
(see \fBunshare \-\-mount\-proc\fP for more details).
.B lsns
is not able to see persistent namespaces without processes where the namespace
instance is held by a bind mount to /proc/\fIpid\fR/ns/\fItype\fR.
