>                 URL:
>             Project: CloudStack
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>      Security Level: Public(Anyone can view this level - this is the default.) 
>          Components: KVM
>    Affects Versions: 4.0.0
>            Reporter: Wido den Hollander
>            Assignee: Wido den Hollander
>             Fix For: 4.2.0
> Currently when we are doing something with qemu-img in the KVM Agent we do things like
> ..
> String result = executeBashScript("qemu-img --help|grep convert");
> ..
> Script.runSimpleBashScript("qemu-img convert"
> ..
> This is not reliable and could be fixed by wrapping qemu-img like this:
> QemuImg.convert(String sourceFormat, String source, String destFormat, string dest);
> This could then handle all  the stuff like checking the output and more importantly also
checking the exit status of Qemu to see if everything works.
> It could throw exceptions where needed so it makes life easier when doing such operations
in the KVM Agent.
> Hopefully we can then also get rid of all kinds of bash scripts being called by the KVM
