Type: unix-hotplug#

Note

The unix-hotplug device type is supported for containers. It supports hotplugging.

Unix hotplug devices make the requested Unix device appear as a device in the instance (under /dev). If the device exists on the host system, you can read from the it and write to it.

The implementation depends on systemd-udev to be run on the host.
