4.338. virt-top

An updated virt-top package that fixes three bugs and adds one enhancement is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The virt-top utility displays statistics of virtualized domains and uses many of the same keys and command line options as the top utility.

Bug Fixes

Prior to this update, the terminal was not properly restored if the --csv flag was given. This update modifies the code so that the terminal is now restored in the correct mode.
The CSV output of virt-top contains only the headers for the first virtual machine. This update adds a script to virt-top so that the CSV output can now be split up into multiple files, each file containing full headers.
When a libvirt error happens early during virt-top start-up, an obscure error message can be printed. With this update, the manual page contains added instructions for debugging libvirt errors that can occur during program initialization.


With this update, the domain memory information is now displayed in the CSV output mode.
All virt-top users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these bugs and adds this enhancement.
