You seem to be using a libvirt hook script[1] which is not part of
default OpenStack installations. Did you ensure that your that script is
invoked correctly? (As that is executed everytime QEMU starts/stops a
Nova guest.

To diagnose this further, a few questions:

  - What host OS?
  - What OpenStack version (openstack-nova specifically)
  - Versions of libvirt, qemu on your host
  - Your (sanitized) nova.conf from Compute node
  - What hypervisor combination? I assume libvirt+QEMU+KVM.
  - Any other configuration alterations you did that'll occur during
    boot time of a guest

Additionally, you can enable libvirt debug logs by setting these in your

    log_level = 1
    log_outputs = 1:file:/var/tmp/libvirtd.log

Restart libvirtd, openstack-nova-compute, and start your guest

(Don't forget to turn off the verbose logging once your debugging is
