Management tools for virtual machines
These are a collection of monitoring and management tools for virtual machines. Commands we support at the moment include: virt-uname 'uname' command, shows OS version, architecture, etc. virt-dmesg 'dmesg' command, shows kernel messages virt-ps 'ps' command, shows process list The general idea is that they allow you to monitor virtual machines without needing to log in to the machine itself or install any extra software inside the virtual machine. At the moment we only support virtual machines running Linux kernel >= 2.6, but we expect to support other operating systems in the future. Most of the commands also offer a CSV (comma-separated values) output format ('virt-xx --csv'), allowing usage from scripts to update spreadsheets, databases or integrate with existing monitoring systems like Nagios. The commands use libvirt to access the underlying virtualization system, so we support a variety of different systems such as Xen, QEMU and KVM, and more can be added just by adding support to libvirt.
