Fedora Virtualization List

This section contains the discussion happening on the fedora-virt list.

New Release virt-top 1.0.4

Richard Jones announced[1] a new release of Package-x-generic-16.pngvirt-top. "Virt-top[2] looks and acts like the familiar top(1) command, displays virtual machines, and uses libvirt so it works with just about every virtualization system out there. It also has cool features for sysadmins, like you can use it to log stats into a database or spreadsheet."

Limit VNC Access to a Single Guest

Dennis asked[1] if it was possible to limit a user to a single guest console rather than the all guests in a Package-x-generic-16.pngvirt-manager instance.

Richard Jones answered that virt-manager doesn't support that level of authorization[2] yet, but each guest console can be given[3] a static VNC port number which can be secured with a firewall or ssh port forwarding.
