[libvirt-users] how to list and kill existing console sessions to VMs?



Hi everyone,

If a VM is configured to have a console attached to it, like using

http://libvirt.org/formatdomain.html#elementCharConsole

Libvirt offers access to VM serial console's using the virDomainOpenConsole API[1]
However, I didn't find a way to
1. list the existing connections to the console
2. kill an existing connection - without reconnecting using VIR_DOMAIN_CONSOLE_FORCE[2]

Am I missing something? How can I do that?

Rationale for my request
oVirt [3] offers a management interface for VMs, and we have recently integrated user-friandly
VM serial console access [4] in the system; in the future release we want to enhance the administation
capabilities allowing to check existing connections and to terminate them (maybe because it got stuck).
