Hi Chris,

You should use LibVMI just for "online live" forensics over a virtual

If you merely need an offline memory dump of a KVM virtual machine, feel
free to use virsh dump without LibVMI.

However, just FYI, LibVMI is evolving drastically to be a great VM-oriented
address space for Volatility.
