Description Bryan Kearney 2012-03-29 09:11:37 EDT
Based on some usability discussions, we should enhance the cli command line options as follows.

1) virt-who 
Start in foreground, print errors to stderr (-d for debugging output)

2) virt-who -o
One-shot mode, exit after sending list of guests

3) virt-who -b
4) service virt-who start
Both the same: start on background (do double-fork), log to /var/log, no 
Comment 1 Radek Novacek 2012-09-26 02:23:27 EDT
virt-who needs to be rebased to latest version.
Comment 2 Radek Novacek 2012-09-26 03:36:27 EDT
This feature is present in virt-who-0.8-1.el6.
Comment 4 Hui Wang 2013-01-16 21:44:22 EST
Verified the issue, the result is PASS.

The command line options as following work well according the man config file.
virt-who -o -d
virt-who -b -d
virt-who -i $n -d

So change the status to verified.
