Sys::Virt::Interface - Represent & manage a libvirt host network interface
The "Sys::Virt::Interface" module represents a host network interface allowing configuration of IP addresses, bonding, vlans and bridges.
my $name = $iface->get_name()
Returns a string with a locally unique name of the network
Returns a true value if the interface is currently running
my $name = $iface->get_mac()
Returns a string with the hardware MAC address of the interface
my $xml = $iface->get_xml_description()
Returns an XML document containing a complete description of the network's configuration
Start a network whose configuration was previously defined using the "define_network" method in Sys::Virt.
Remove the configuration associated with a network previously defined with the "define_network" method in Sys::Virt. If the network is
running, you probably want to use the "shutdown" or "destroy" methods instead.
Immediately terminate the machine, and remove it from the virtual machine monitor. The $iface handle is invalid after this call
completes and should not be used again.
The following constants are used when querying XML
Request the inactive XML, instead of the current possibly live config.
