comment CentOS Qemu+KVM lot of virtual machine processes
Hmm, not IO threads, but probably some other worker threads utilized by the VM.

comment CentOS Qemu+KVM lot of virtual machine processes
Thanks. I expected to find io-threads in the disk xml, but it might still be the default. When you run ps -ef |grep VMNAME, do you see threads there? Also, when you stop the two VMs, do all these processes go away?

Can you post the VM domxml? These could be IO threads, or other worker threads, depending on the settings

comment virsh: VM console does not show any output
That is specific to python, not Linux in general.

comment virsh: VM console does not show any output
that's just done for convenience, nothing to prevent a .sh file to be executed as a python script, if the hashbang is correct

In Linux extensions are meaningless, just a part of the filename

comment Mount VM filesystem on host
just keep in mind, that the nbd module is probably going to become deprecated at some point, and you're better off using libvirt's libguestfs instead

Case 1: there might in fact be a solution through virsh, but it will be simple orchestration of the same solution. Case 2: it's not going back/forth on reverts, it's basically branching out. I'll add the solution in the answer

comment State of VM after 'virsh save'
In Windows you have VSS taking care of quiescing per app, in Linux, everything is separate, so you need to use qemu-ga with hooks into whatever software you have. fsfreeze is one thing, mysqldump is another example. In short, you need to take care of the apps you have in place via an in-guest agent, like qemu-ga.

So you want to dump all data in snap3, but not move the VM back to using snap2? Then before step 3, take a new snap3
