I am running kvm-85 on a rhel 5 and i am writing a linux script to discover running KVM guests (the script runs locally).
The main problem I found is the discovery of running KVM guests.
Consider I don't want to install any additional software like libvrt to manage guests
1) Is there a monitor I can query with some scripts to detect the runnign guests ? (as in XEN where I used xm/xe commands to list available domains)
2) Is there an easy way to detect running machines ? with a command line script ?
3) Should I require that every machine is started with -monitor option and connect to this monitor for each machine ?
Thanks in advance,
