NAME

       Sys::Virt::Interface - Represent & manage a libvirt host network interface

DESCRIPTION

       The "Sys::Virt::Interface" module represents a host network interface allowing
       configuration of IP addresses, bonding, vlans and bridges.

METHODS

       my $name = $iface->get_name()
           Returns a string with a locally unique name of the network

       $iface->is_active()
           Returns a true value if the interface is currently running

       my $name = $iface->get_mac()
           Returns a string with the hardware MAC address of the interface

       my $xml = $iface->get_xml_description()
           Returns an XML document containing a complete description of the network's
           configuration

       $iface->create()
           Start a network whose configuration was previously defined using the "define_network"
           method in Sys::Virt.

       $iface->undefine()
           Remove the configuration associated with a network previously defined with the
           "define_network" method in Sys::Virt. If the network is running, you probably want to
           use the "shutdown" or "destroy" methods instead.

       $iface->destroy()
           Immediately terminate the machine, and remove it from the virtual machine monitor. The
           $iface handle is invalid after this call completes and should not be used again.

       Sys::Virt::Interface::LIST_INACTIVE
           Include interfaces that are not active

   XML CONSTANTS
       The following constants are used when querying XML

       Sys::Virt::Interface::XML_INACTIVE
           Request the inactive XML, instead of the current possibly live config.
