        selecting the guest domain and hypervisor.  When you need to build a
        job on a specific Slave, its guest domain is started, then the job is
        run.  When the build process is finished, the guest domain is shut
        down, ready to be used again as required.

        Xen to run on OpenStack, oVirt (RHEV-M), or local libvirt.  It
        will enable VirtIO drivers in the converted guest if possible.
        (Note this tool is included with libguestfs)
      </dd>
      <dd>

        An older tool for converting a physical machine into a virtual
        machine.  It is a LiveCD which is booted on the machine to be
        converted.  It collects a little information from the user, then
        copies the disks over to a remote machine and defines the XML for a
        domain to run the guest.
