LXD provides an /events endpoint that is upgraded to a streaming websocket for getting LXD events in real-time. The Client‘s events method will return a websocket client that can interact with the web socket messages.

>>> ws_client =
>>> ws_client.connect()

A default client class is provided, which will block indefinitely, and collect all json messages in a messages attribute. An optional websocket_client parameter can be provided when more functionality is needed. The ws4py library is used to establish the connection; please see the ws4py documentation for more information.
