Description

a quote from zoneadm.c:601
/* * fetch_zents() calls zone_list(2) to find out how many zones are running * (which is stored in the global nzents), then calls zone_list(2) again * to fetch the list of running zones (stored in the global zents). This * function may be called multiple times, so if zents is already set, we * return immediately to save work.

but no manual page for system call zone_list
also, many other functions to use zones have no descriptions

That's because those system calls are not public interfaces and are a private implementation detail of the system.

It's time to create a public API to manipulate zones programmatically, don't you think so?
like jail(2) in FreeBSD
thanks anyway
