GObject binding for libvirt native C API and XML schemas
libvirt is a C toolkit to interact with the virtualization capabilities of recent versions of Linux (and other OSes). It is free software available under the GNU Lesser General Public License. Virtualization on the Linux Operating System means the ability to run multiple instances of Operating Systems concurrently on a single hardware system where the basic resources are driven by a Linux instance. The library aim at providing long term stable C API initially for the Xen paravirtualization but should be able to integrate other virtualization mechanisms if needed.
libvirt-glib wraps libvirt to provide a high-level object-oriented API better suited for glib-based applications, via three libraries:
- libvirt-glib - GLib main loop integration & misc helper APIs
- libvirt-gconfig - GObjects for manipulating libvirt XML documents
- libvirt-gobject - GObjects for managing libvirt objects
