Re: [Libvir] How libvirt handles QEMU?

I am new to libvirt, so have a question. My concern is: libvirt can
manage QEMU VMs. The point is thatI QEMU doesnt not export monitor
interface to outside (at least that is what I know about older version
of QEMU, not sure if anything changed recently).

So how can libvirt does something like: pause, resume or extract
internal information about a QEMU VM?

libvirt currently uses a daemon (libvirt_qemud) which keeps a connection to the qemu processes' stdin & stdout.

In future (IMHO) we ought to use qemu -monitor pipe:/var/some/well/known/random/pipe so that no daemon should be needed.
