      I'd like to see a few more controls/options exposed via Cockpit's webUI for creating and managing VMs.
      Cockpit UI for virtual machines. Contribute to cockpit-project/cockpit-machines development by creating an account on GitHub.

        I am six one way, half dozen the other, I doubt cockpit will ever get the point of virtmanager even. so ill keep using both for a long time most likely

          I'd like to see performance improvements for the resolving of DHCP requests from libvirt's internal DHCP stack. It's not a huge thing for wider use of libvirt, but on my laptop I can watch the DHCP request from a VM go out. PXE booting a VM where the PXE server is either the host system or another local VM is especially frustrating. Takes an inordinate amount of time when the data files are all local. I will sit there *willing* it to be faster. Seems to take forever. Watched kettle and all that.

          Do DHCP requests default to timing out on any/every available network before trying the libvirft DHCP stack?

            If you are looking for extensive web based virtual machine management, oVirt is by far the best option.
            While it is designed to high end shared storage scenarios (E.g. multiple hosts with GlusterFS storage / NAS) it has no issues running on a mid-end desktop with 16-32GB RAM.

            BTW, FWIW I'm currently typing this on a Fedora VM (w/ GPU pass-through) running on my private oVirt cluster (see signature below).
