I have a .qcow2 image, and I can port it easily to a different computer. But I'd also like to port its saved state. Where are they stored?
I'm on Manjaro/Arch.

You can view the location of the VM block devices by using the following command:
virsh domblklist VM1
The whole backing chaing of the block device can be seen:
qemu-img info --backing-chain /var/lib/libvirt/images/VM1.snap1
The clone procedure was perfectly desribed here: Clone KVM virtual machine with snapshots
