virt-manager - Graphical tool for managing libvirt VMs
virt-manager is a desktop tool for managing virtual machines. It provides the ability to control the lifecycle of existing machines (bootup/shutdown,pause/resume,suspend/restore), provision new virtual machines and various types of store, manage virtual networks, access the graphical console of virtual machines, and view performance statistics, all done locally or remotely.
Standard GTK options like --g-fatal-warnings are accepted.

- -h, --help
- Display command line help summary
- Show virt-manager's version number and exit
- -c, --connect
- Specify the hypervisor connection URI
- List debugging output to the console (normally this is only logged in ~/.cache/virt-manager/virt-manager.log). This function implies --no-fork.
