NAME

Sys::Virt::NodeDevice - Represent & manage a libvirt storage pool

DESCRIPTION

The Sys::Virt::NodeDevice module represents a storage pool managed by libvirt. There are a variety of storage pool implementations for LVM, Local directories/filesystems, network filesystems, disk partitioning, iSCSI, and SCSI.

METHODS

my $name = $dev->get_name()

Returns a string with a locally unique name of the device

my $parentname = $dev->get_parent()

Returns a string with a locally unique name of the parent of the device, or undef if there is no parent

my $xml = $dev->get_xml_description()

Returns an XML document containing a complete description of the storage dev's configuration

$dev->reattach()

Rebind the node device to the host OS device drivers.

$dev->dettach()

Unbind the node device from the host OS device driver

$dev->reset()

Reset the node device. The device must be unbound from the host OS drivers for this to work

$dev->destroy()

Destroy the virtual device releasing any OS resources associated with it.

my @caps = $dev->list_capabilities()

Return a list of all capabilities in the device.
