Using the QMP sockets,the KVM daemon listens for particular shutdown, powerdown, and stopevents which will determine if a given instance was shutdown by theuser or Ganeti, and this result is communicated to Ganeti via aspecial file in the filesystem.FILES-----The KVM daemon monitors Qmp sockets of KVM instances, which are createdin the KVM control directory, located under``@LOCALSTATEDIR@/run/ganeti/kvm-hypervisor/ctrl/``. The KVM daemonalso creates shutdown files in this directory. Finally, the KVMdaemon's log file is located under``@LOCALSTATEDIR@/log/ganeti/ganeti-kvmd.log``. Removal of the KVMcontrol directory, the shutdown files, or the log file, will lead to noerrors on the KVM daemon.
