Re: [libvirt] Virtual disk size associated with a Domain



Thanks Daniel,

I am currently using libvirt 0.6.3. Is there a way to do it in this version.
If it is not at all possible in 0.6.3, and only possible from 0.8.1 onwards,
then I will upgrade to 0.8.1. Because for the version upgrade, I will have
to clearly explain to my client the reason why we need to upgrade.

So, If I can fetch the same info as "virDomainGetBlockInfo" in 0.6.3 in some
other way, that would be just awesome. Or if I can calculate the disk size
from any other parameters, then please guide me on that also.
Please help.

Thanks and Regards
Sagar Barve
