Starting in libguestfs 1.22, the auxiliary Perl library
Sys::Guestfs::Lib will be completely removed from libguestfs.
Historically this library contained the first implementation of
inspection (only available to Perl programs). However in libguestfs
1.5.3 [released August 2010], most of the code was rewritten in C and
included in the core library and available to callers in all
programming languages. virt-v2v was modified to remove the need for
this library two years ago in March 2011.
In the unlikely case there are still callers to this library (outside
of a handful of Perl tools in libguestfs itself), I suggest modifying
the code to use core inspection:
or second best would be to copy the Sys::Guestfs::Lib code into your
program, although note this code is very outdated and possibly
Note this change will also affect RHEL 7.

virt-top is 'top' for virtual machines. Tiny program with many
powerful monitoring features, net stats, disk stats, logging, etc.
