In this video I review Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) version 1.5.1 powered by Libvirt and built for Linux. It utilizes KVM/QEMU as its hypervisor to run virtual machines of Linux, MacOS, Windows, and BSD. I demo installing VMM and show a live VM of Debian and Windows running inside VMM in FerenOS Linux January 2020 Snapshot.

Command in the Terminal to check on the status of a VM called web in VMM:

sudo qemu-img check -r all /var/lib/libvirt/images/web.qcow2

------------

Command in the Terminal to determine the size of a VM called web in VMM:

sudo qemu-img info /var/lib/libvirt/images/web.qcow2

Command in the Terminal to increase the size of a VM called web in VMM by 2GB:

sudo qemu-img resize /var/lib/libvirt/images/web.qcow2 +2G

Note: the above command works as long as you have no snapshots taken of the VM. If you do, you'll have to remove those before increasing the size of the VM virtual drive space.
