I got it, thanks.

By the way, i found that virt-xxx usually has very poor performance on
my box. e.g. virt-filesystems will return the result in 30s,
virt-resize will need 30 minutes to complete resizing one disk. Every
virt-xxx need to start one QEMU guest at first every time it is
issued, so this takes too long time to run. I am trying to find out
some ways to improve its perf.
