Which version of virt-top is this?

Script mode is designed to run forever.  If used in conjunction with
--csv then you'll get an ever longer CSV file.  But you also add
either '-n <iterations>' or '--end-time <time>'[1] to make it stop
early (or just kill it instead).

For example:

  virt-top -c test:///default --script --csv /tmp/test.csv -n 10

will run for 30 seconds, produce a 11 line (10 measurements + title)
CSV file, and then exit.  If it _doesn't_ do that, then please file a
bug.

The virt-top manpage explains all the options in some detail.

Rich.

[1] Various <time> formats as explained in the manpage.
