virt-top reports the stats directly from libvirt, the same
as 'virsh (domblkstat|domifstat|..)'

guestfish is in its own package (called 'guestfish').

To see what files are in a package, do:

$ rpm -ql libguestfs-tools
/usr/bin/virt-cat
/usr/bin/virt-df
/usr/bin/virt-edit
/usr/bin/virt-inspector
/usr/bin/virt-list-filesystems
/usr/bin/virt-list-partitions
/usr/bin/virt-ls
/usr/bin/virt-make-fs
/usr/bin/virt-rescue
/usr/bin/virt-resize
/usr/bin/virt-tar
/usr/bin/virt-win-reg
[...]

and to find out how to use each tool, read the man page:

$ man virt-df
