You'll find that the new virt-df is slower than the old one.  See:


I imagine that people won't want to run virt-df very often - for
monitoring disk usage it would seem sufficient to run it at most once
an hour, in which case the fact that it takes a few extra seconds to
start up doesn't seem to be a problem.

However, maybe I'm wrong.  It would be possible to have a "persistent"
version of virt-df, if there was really a use case for it.  Or you can
use guestfish remote support to get the raw figures more frequently /
without the start up overhead.

virt-df lists disk usage of guests without needing to install any
software inside the virtual machine.  Supports Linux and Windows.
