5.350. virt-top and ocaml-libvirt

Updated virt-top and ocaml-libvirt packages that fix two bugs are now available.
The virt-top utility displays statistics of virtualized domains and uses many of the same keys and command line options as the top utility.
The ocaml-libvirt package provides OCaml (Objective CAML) bindings for libvirt, allowing users to write OCaml programs and scripts which control virtualization features.

Bug Fix

Output of the "virt-top -1" command (which displays physical CPU usage) did not contain all the needed information from libvirt in order to provide accurate accounting of physical CPU usage. With this update, the underlying source code has been modified to address this issue, and the "virt-top -1" output now displays accurate statistics.
All users of virt-top and ocaml-libvirt are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.
