A tiny process manager for QEMU that can gracefully shutdown VMs with interrupt signals. It was inspired by Arch Linux’s QEMU wiki.

The script makes a few assumptions about the arguments that it is given.

  • The args contain a valid QEMU command
  • The args contain a -monitor flag configured with a UNIX socket. TCP/Telnet is not supported.
  • The guest OS supports ACPI shutdown signals
