Virtual Machine Manager (virt-manager) is based on libvirt and supports several Hypervisors

In computing, the Red Hat Virtual Machine Manager, also known as virt-manager, is a desktop virtual machine manager.[3]

Features

Virtual Machine Manager allows users to:

  • create, edit, start and stop VMs
  • view and control each VM's console
  • see performance and utilization statistics for each VM
  • view all running VMs and hosts, and their live performance or resource utilization statistics.
  • use KVM, Xen or QEMU virtual machines, running either locally or remotely.
  • use LXC containers

Support for FreeBSD's bhyve hypervisor has been included since 2014, though it remains disabled by default.[4]
