I think this should be changed to read "tap:aio:/var/lib..." instead
of file:/var/lib..."
The performance will be better and it will reduce the amount of
caching that the linux buffer cache does on your "disk image file".

That should help with the next lightning strike :)


the purpose of libvirt is to provide an abstraction layer hiding all
xen features added since 2006 until they were finally understood and
copied by the kvm devs.
