Description Juan Urroa 2009-02-27 23:04:23 EST
Description of problem:
This a whish to have not a bug. I think it would be very practical to show the vm id in the name of the vnets created by libvirt, just like in Xen

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
create a new vm and run ifconfig it shows vnet0, vnet1,...
It should be better if the look like vnet0.0, vnet11.0 like in Xen vifs
Actual results:

Expected results:

Moving to upstream libvirt bugzilla - I guess it wouldn't be difficult to implement, but would it really help much?
Comment 2 Juan Urroa 2009-09-29 19:40:05 EDT
It helps when debugging the network with wireshark
Comment 3 Cole Robinson 2015-04-27 17:02:11 EDT
This never happened and I don't really expect it ever will, so just closing. If someone still cares I suggest sending a patch to libvir-list for discussion
