How do I get the kvm virtual machine status using python API?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


I'm using the following python code to get information about VM status:

    vmm ='qemu:///system')
    guest = vmm.lookupByName(some_name)
    status =[0]

Sometime I get a libvirt exception upon execution. Are there are known conditions that prevent libvirt from returning the VM status as expected?
