Use of the container shell

With the OSISM CLI it is possible to enter a shell on a container running on a node.

This is useful, for example, to view running instances that are managed via Libvirt.

In this example, the command virsh list is executed in the nova_libvirt container running on the com1069 node.

$ osism console com1069/nova_libvirt
(nova-libvirt)[root@com1069 /]# virsh list
Id Name State
190 instance-001b2492 running

(nova-libvirt)[root@com1069 /]#
