Re: [libvirt] Interface driver and ESX support

I would like to get host(i.e. node) interface info
as well as domain(guest) network/interface info
I will probably would like to set/manipulate the node and domains as well
but it is simpler to start with the get functions - isn't it?
Did I totally misunderstood the architecture?

  * virConnectNumOfDefinedInterfaces:
  * @conn: pointer to the hypervisor connection
  * Provides the number of defined (inactive) interfaces on the
  * physical host.
  * Returns the number of defined interface found or -1 in case of
  * error

*on thephysical host*

ESX only support remote access basically, so the whole set of Interface
functions are moot. I think it's not what you're looking for anyway.
