14.15.2.3. Taking a snapshot of the current domain

This command is used to query which snapshot is currently in use. To use, run:
# virsh snapshot-current domain {[--name] | [--security-info] | [snapshotname]}
If snapshotname is not used, snapshot XML for the domain’s current snapshot (if there is one) will be displayed as output. If --name is specified, just the current snapshot name instead of the full XML will be sent as output. If --security-info is supplied, security sensitive information will be included in the XML. Using snapshotname, libvirt generates a request to make the existing named snapshot become the current snapshot, without reverting it to the domain.
