Description Bryan Kearney 2012-03-29 09:15:01 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #808060 +++

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 2012-07-09 08:54:09 EDT
It will be better to do a rebase, because this change affects quite big codebase. Other changes from upstream (couple of fixes that is already present in rhel-6)  needs to be dragged as well, so rebase makes sense.
Comment 2 Radek Novacek 2012-07-17 04:06:51 EDT
This feature has been implemented in virt-who-0.7-1.el5.
Comment 4 yqiao 2012-08-02 05:34:51 EDT
-b and -d options work well ,but some error happen to -o option as follows:

2012-08-01 23:27:40,303 [ERROR]  @virt-who.py:164 - Unable to create connection:

Comment 8 Radek Novacek 2012-09-17 08:56:39 EDT
Removing dependence on bug 808060, because it's RHEL-6 bug.
Comment 9 Radek Novacek 2012-09-19 09:27:10 EDT
Dependent bugs are fixed, moving to ON_QA.
Comment 10 ndong 2012-09-20 02:32:04 EDT
Since the virt-who with -o function works well without errors in virt-who-0.7-6.el5, changed status from ON_QA to VERIFIED.
Comment 11 ndong 2012-09-20 04:24:33 EDT
The dependence bugs have been fixed. so moving the bug to Verified. Moreover, the virt-who with -o function works well without errors in virt-who-0.7-6.el5, changed status from ON_QA to VERIFIED.
