"virt-list-partitions" is a command line tool to list the partitions
that are contained in a virtual machine or disk image. It is mainly
useful as a first step to using virt-resize(1).
"virt-list-partitions" is just a simple wrapper around libguestfs(3)
functionality. For more complex cases you should look at the
Display brief help.
Display version number and exit.
If using libvirt, connect to the given URI. If omitted, then we
connect to the default libvirt hypervisor.
If you specify guest block devices directly, then libvirt is not
used at all.
Specify the format of disk images given on the command line. If
this is omitted then the format is autodetected from the content of
the disk image.
If disk images are requested from libvirt, then this program asks
libvirt for this information. In this case, the value of the
format parameter is ignored.
If working with untrusted raw-format guest disk images, you should
ensure the format is always specified.
Show sizes in human-readable form (eg. "1G").
With this option, "virt-list-partitions" displays the type and size
of each partition too (where "type" means "ext3", "pv" etc.)
Display the total size of each block device (as a separate row or
Libvirt guest names can contain arbitrary characters, some of which
have meaning to the shell such as "#" and space. You may need to quote
or escape these characters on the command line. See the shell manual
page sh(1) for details.
