Canonical Livepatch Service with LXC/LXD


(Tom) #1

Hello,

I have read some information about Canonical Livepatch. I wondered how safe this is on machines with LXD containers. https://www.ubuntu.com/livepatch

Can LXC / LXD handle this? And is this completely stable and can I use the service on LXD hosts?

Both Livepatch and LXD are supported software so they are fine working together.

Livepatch is applying updates to the Linux kernel without having to restart the kernel/server. Not all updates can be livepatched, but most can.
