 +This also allows you to execute //​qemu-agent-command//​ from within //virsh//, but this is strongly discouraged unless you have researched what is going on. Any changes you make can cause instability in libvirt, since they are bypassing virsh. Kind of like using hdparm, where you can do Really Bad Things to your hard disk if you don't know for sure what you are doing. Do what you want, but be careful.
