Jails are widely considered one of FreeBSD’s killer features, but they’re widely misunderstood. In this session, Michael W. Lucas takes you through how jails work, what they can and can’t do, and how to decide how jails fit into your environment.

He’ll discuss:

  •     Jails as VMs
  •     Configuring the jail host
  •     Properties and parameters
  •     Jail management
  •     Packages and upgrades
  •     Base jails
  •     Virtual networking with VNET
  •     Firewalls in jails
  •     Jails in jails
  •     Resource restrictions

The one-hour session will take place at 10am PDT/17:00 UTC  at https://live.freebsd.org/FreeBSD/freebsdfriday/
