14.5.5. Displaying Device Block Statistics

download PDF
This command will display the block statistics for a running domain. You need to have both the domain name and the device name (use the virsh domblklist to list the devices.)In this case a block device is the unique target name (<target dev='name'/>) or a source file (< source file ='name'/>). Note that not every hypervisor can display every field. To make sure that the output is presented in its most legible form use the --human option, as shown:
# virsh domblklist rhel6
Target     Source
vda        /VirtualMachines/rhel6.img
hdc        -

# virsh domblkstat --human rhel6 vda
