[libvirt-users] libvirt.so is not safe to use from setuid programs

When trying to connect the HyperVisor from a binary  having  setuid bit set , then I got following error:

Unable to perform virConnectOpenReadOnly function error(internal error: libvirt.so is not safe to use from setuid programs)

My test software config is the following :

-rwsr-xr-x. 1 root root 3374956 Feb  4 13:45 test

As this test software needs S bit to be able to access O.S. metrics counters , how may I use it to retrieve  KVM metrics counters ?

Thx for help.
