Comments Off on How to: Using KVM from the Command Line

There are different ways to manage virtual machines (VMs) running on KVM hypervisor. For example, virt-manager is a popular GUI-based front-end for VM management.

Alternatively, you can use virsh which is an easier-to-use command-line user interface for managing guest VMs. Underneath virsh, it communicates wtih libvirtd service which can control several different hypervisors including KVM, Xen, QEMU, LXC and OpenVZ.

On Monday afternoon, he posted a string of distressing and erratic tweets, revealing he had been arrested by police near his home in the city, and that he was accused of assaulting an officer.

His Twitter account has since been disabled.
