I found out the *qm terminal* command line switch was lacking a
comprehensive documentation so I wrote a wiki article about it.


Serial Terminal / Serial Consoles are text only, but much faster [1] than
the NoVNC javascript console, and a very powerful tool if you like to
have a command line workflow instead of a web base workflow.

IMHO, a serialk terminal can provide the speed of the java VNC applet,
without the need to install the java applet in your browser.


[1] If you try something like

while true; do

in your NoVNC console, it will generate a lot of text output and freeze
your browser. A serial terminal handle this without problem.
