Hi all,

Has been toying a bit with qemu-ga and discovered that current version
supports listing network interfaces in the client:

{"return": [
"name": "lo", "ip-addresses": [
    {"ip-address-type": "ipv4", "ip-address": "", "prefix": 8},
    {"ip-address-type": "ipv6", "ip-address": "::1", "prefix": 128}
"hardware-address": "00:00:00:00:00:00"
"name": "eth0", "ip-addresses": [
    {"ip-address-type": "ipv4", "ip-address": "", "prefix": 24},
    {"ip-address-type": "ipv6", "ip-address": "fe80::84e8:9eff:fec6:dff6", "prefix": 64}
"hardware-address": "86:e8:9e:c6:df:f6"

would it not be a cool feature to use qemu-ga
guest-network-get-interfaces to display VM interfaces*) in the status panel provided guest agent is enabled and running in the client?

guest-set-time is also available to synchronize VM time with host
without the need of a running ntp server in the VM - NTP really do not
like having a VM migrated due to the freeze state. This could also be a
cool feature.

*) Not available currently in the windows agent.
