What is the XML file format? And for the virDomainCreate function, what would be the domain parameter in Python?

The XML format is documented here:


We can't use the Xen format directly because we have to be portable across different hypervisors.

virDomainDefineXML returns a virDomainPtr which you can pass in to virDomainCreate. (Or the equivalent Python functions).
