kvmman overview =============== Jamie Iles <email@example.com> kvmman is a simple application to manager KVM instances. libvirt is great but is difficult to use for development/testing as there is no nice way to easily boot a different kernel or change the configuration. Running kvm/qemu on the command line is fine too but it's difficult to keep track of the machines and magic incantation to run them. Adding Machines --------------- Machines are described in a YAML configuration file in ~/.kvmman as a file called NAME.kvm where NAME needs to be a unique machine name. Each file describes only a single machine. For example: ~/.kvmman/fedora/fedora.kvm: ---- rootfs: ~/vms/fedora.img mem: 2048 smp: 2 graphics: -sdl -vga vmware serial: pty ---- describes a machine called "fedora" with 2G RAM, 2 processors running with SDL graphics and using a PTY for the serial. The kernel is in the disk image. Online help is available by running kvmman on it's own though it is a little lacking.
