Description Mohua Li 2010-06-07 03:04:17 UTC
Description of problem:

for some guest, like ESX guest, the average convert time for a 10G disk about 1 hour, user won't get any information output until  1 hour later to have the finally information like below,

"unknown filesystem /dev/hdc
 unknown filesystem /dev/fd0
 virt-v2v: ESX4.0-RHEL4.8-x86_64 configured with virtio drivers

That's not good enough, we could give user different information in different phase during the process, like below, it will be helpful

"Transferring image,
