Sys::Virt::Interface - Represent & manage a libvirt host network interface
The Sys::Virt::Interface module represents a host network interface allowing configuration of IP addresses, bonding, vlans and bridges.
Returns a string with a locally unique name of the network
Returns a true value if the interface is currently running
Returns a string with the hardware MAC address of the interface
Returns an XML document containing a complete description of the network's configuration
Start a network whose configuration was previously defined using the define_network method in Sys::Virt.
Remove the configuration associated with a network previously defined with the define_network method in Sys::Virt. If the network is running, you probably want to use the shutdown or destroy methods instead.
Immediately terminate the machine, and remove it from the virtual machine monitor. The $iface handle is invalid after this call completes and should not be used again.
This section documents constants that are used with various APIs described above
The following constants are used to filter object lists
Include interfaces that are active
Include interfaces that are not active
The following constants can be used to control the behaviour of interface define operations
Validate the XML document against the XML schema
The following constants are used when querying XML
Request the inactive XML, instead of the current possibly live config.
