I wanted to check if my Proxmox instance uses LVM for KVM guests to achieve better performance

so Where is KVM guest configuration (xml) located in proxmox?

share|improve this question

The configuration files for guests is located at /etc/pve/qemu-server

+1 Thanks, but is there any KVM XML file for guests? because I think these files belongs to Proxmox itself. – Maya Oct 31 '12 at 13:42
There is no such thing as KVM XML file. There exist libvirt XML files, but not KVM. – ptman Nov 5 '12 at 7:32
Thank you, can you locate those XML files please? – Zim3r Nov 5 '12 at 7:45
There is no XML config for proxmox. All the configs are at /etc/pve/nodes/guest-name/qemu-server and they are .conf not xml :) – Hex Nov 5 '12 at 18:16
