[libvirt] [PATCH v2 0/5] Introduce API for dumping domain IP addresses



This feature has been requested for a very long time. However,
we had to wait for guest agent to obtain reliable results as
user might create totally different structure of interfaces than
seen from outside (e.g. bonding, virtual interfaces, etc.).
That's the main reason why sniffing for domain traffic can
return bogus results. Fortunately, qemu guest agent implement
requested part for a while so nothing holds us back anymore.

To make matters worse, guest OS can assign whatever name to
an interface and changing MAC inside guest isn't propagated
to the host which in the end see original one.

Therefore, finding correlation between interface within guest
and the host side end is left as exercise for mgmt applications.

This API is called virDomainGetInterfacesAddresses (okay, maybe
too many plurals) and returns a XML document containing all
interesting data.

diff to v1:
-switch from struct to XML doc

Michal Privoznik (5):
  Introduce virDomainGetInterfacesAddresses API
  virsh: Expose virDomainGetInterfacesAddresses
  qemu_agent: Implement 'guest-network-get-interfaces' command handling
  qemu: Implement virDomainInterfacesAddresses
  python: create example for dumping domain IP addresses
