20.24. Displaying CPU Statistics for a Specified Guest Virtual Machine

The virsh cpu-stats domain --total start count command provides the CPU statistical information on the specified guest virtual machine. By default, it shows the statistics for all CPUs, as well as a total. The --total option will only display the total statistics. The --count option will only display statistics for count CPUs.

Example 20.51. How to generate CPU statistics for the guest virtual machine

The following example generates CPU statistics for the guest virtual machine named guest1.
# virsh cpu-stats guest1
