A Red Hat training course is available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux

3.4. RHEA-2011:1636 — new package: libvirt-qmf

A new libvirt-qmf package is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The libvirt-qmf package contains a daemon to allow remote control of the libvirt API through the Qpid Management Framework (QMF).


With this update, the libvirt-qmf package obsoletes the libvirt-qpid package, which provided similar functionality. The new package uses the matahari library to provide an interface consistent with that of other Matahari agents.
Note: After installation, it is advisable to convert existing QMF consoles, that previously connected to libvirt-qpid, to use libvirt-qmf as their interface. Also, when creating a new QMF console, it is recommended to use libvirt-qmf to communicate with libvirt.
All users requiring libvirt-qmf are advised to install this new package, which adds this enhancement.
