       uts_namespaces - overview of Linux UTS namespaces

       UTS  namespaces  provide isolation of two system identifiers: the host-
       name and the NIS domain name.  These identifiers are set using sethost-
       name(2)  and  setdomainname(2),  and  can  be retrieved using uname(2),
       gethostname(2), and getdomainname(2).  Changes made  to  these  identi-
       fiers are visible to all other processes in the same UTS namespace, but
       are not visible to processes in other UTS namespaces.

       When a process creates a new UTS namespace using clone(2) or unshare(2)
       with  the  CLONE_NEWUTS  flag,  the  hostname and domain of the new UTS
       namespace are copied from the corresponding values in the caller's  UTS

       Use  of  UTS  namespaces  requires a kernel that is configured with the
       CONFIG_UTS_NS option.
