Managing KVM Deployments with Virt-Manager
libvirt provides many features to do more complex things with virtual machines, such as storage, networking and USB/PCI options. All of those features should be accessed using the virsh command-line tool. virt-manager provides GUI-based wizards for creating new virtual machines and allows dynamic reconfiguration of the boot device while displaying interactive performance graphs (Figure 4). For home users, the best feature of virt-manager is its ability to show multiple VM consoles at the same time.
Other distributions will work with KVM, although the creation of the host bridged network is likely to be different. Advanced users may want to investigate the use of Logical Volume Managers (LVMs) instead of flat-file images to improve performance.
