My Question is "What is stored in the /var/lib/libvirt/qemu folder?" Is this used as somekind of backup folder ?

Backgroundinformation: I have a Debian Server with a running KVM installation(+libvirt) and ~ 15 running VMs. And i want to understand why in this folder are multiple files for one VM. Like domain-35-[VM1] and domain-18-[VM1].

I "obtained" the Server lately and never before worked with KVM/libvirt.

Thanks for your help.
