Re: [libvirt] Expose virDomainGetAutostart through virsh?

Hi list,

I'd like to check if a domain has autostart enabled. I do this now by
looking if there's a symlink in /etc/libvirt/qemu/autostart, but it
feels a bit hackish.

Is this something that could be added to virsh?
Something like virsh get-autostart domain would be great.

For now there are two options how to check the autostart flag:

1) virsh dominfo - This is suitable to check for the state of a single guest. Unfortunately we have just this one output option where it is embedded with other information about the guest:

$ virsh dominfo tr
Id:             1
Name:           tr
UUID:           17f42b42-9fdd-81e3-4a93-a75021a707d3
OS Type:        hvm
State:          running
CPU(s):         1
CPU time:       200.5s
Max memory:     53248 KiB
Used memory:    53248 KiB
Persistent:     yes
Autostart:      enable				<- here!
Managed save:   no
Security model: none
Security DOI:   0

2) use virsh list --all --autostart to list guests that have the autostart flag enabled (also note that there are script-friendly outputs for virsh list --name and --uuid):

$ virsh list --all --autostart
 Id    Name                           State
 1     tr                             running
 -     Bare                           shut off

We're planing on adding the autostart flag as an XML element and a few other improvements of autostaring guests.

Kind regards,
