The nexenta pliugin uses libiscsi. You can easily verify that using

# qm showcmd <vmid>

if the device ref start with 'iscsi://' ==> libiscsi

Or check the 'path' method inside the plugin source.

for Nexenta:

sub path {
    my ($class, $scfg, $volname) = @_;
    my $path = "iscsi://$portal/$target/$lun";

    return ($path, $vmid, $vtype);

So this is libiscsi.
