I am a newbie in the area of Linux KVM virtualization. Can anybody help how to connect to my KVM hypervisor from a remote Linux machine without using LibVirt or any other third party library. I have searched for this but all the results that i got was using libvirt or commands related to it. I am not allowed to use any third party library and need to take the backup of my KVM from remote machine.
Can you also tell me why a deamon is required in KVM when it is not required in VMware ESXI?
Are there any KVM API's present for taking the backup of VM's running on KVM from a remote machine (without using libvirt)? This backup need to be take at different levels such as VM level, Disk level and file level.
