.TH kvm 1 2020-07 "5.0" Debian
.SH NAME
kvm \- kvm-enabling link for qemu-system-@ARCH@
.SH DESCRIPTION
When executed as
.BR kvm ,
qemu-system is run with preference to native hardware-based
virtualization, instead of relying solely on emulation.
Essentially
.B kvm
is equivalent to
.B qemu-system-@ARCH@
.I -machine accel=kvm:tcg
so when the host CPU support the kvm mode, native hardware
virtualization is enabled, or qemu-system-@ARCH@ falls back
to the emulation (TCG) mode.
.SH SEE ALSO
.BR qemu-system-@ARCH@ (1).
