Description Don Dutile (Red Hat) 2011-09-09 16:17:14 UTC
Description of problem:

(1) Looking at the table of contents, and trying to find virsh command line help is a bit like finding a needle in a haystack.
Ch 15, Managing Guests with virsh, should have section numbers prefixing most of the topic headers.
For example:
'virsh command quick reference'  should be tagged as 15.1, 
'Attaching and updating a device with virsh' should be tagged as 15.2
Will update this bz in a comment with recommended section numbering, naming, and what existing content should be pulled under those sections.

(2) another set of virsh capability has been brought to my attention that receives a significant amount of email and that is cpu model & features definition for a guest.  A new section titled 'Guest CPU model configuration' should be added.  Content for the new section will be added as an attachment.
The source of the content will come from this web link, edited for RHEL6 and this document:
