Virtual Machine Manager

The Virtual Machine manager (virt-manager) is another graphical management application for virtual machines. It provides a dashboard view of currently running domains and their statistics. It also contains an embedded VNC client viewer that enables you to connect to a guest domain and display its full graphical console. It also comes with a command line tool called virt-install that can be used for provisioning new virtual machines. Virt-manager is intended to be used with any virtualization, not just Xen.
