Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 487835
RFE: iface name: Generated <interface> targets should contain the VM ID, helps debugging

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):
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
Moving to upstream libvirt bugzilla - I guess it wouldn't be difficult to implement, but would it really help much?
It helps when debugging the network with wireshark
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
