Eli can you expose the amount of free allocatable cache space (where non-free includes space used by other reservations) in a 'free_space' field in the cache output of virConnectGetCapabilities?
There should be an API for that instead. Capabilities are supposed to show what the hardware is capable of, not what the actual state is. If my opinion is not enough, see here: https://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2017-January/msg00500.html
