Hi, I need to take the backup of all the VM's running on a KVM from a remote machine without creating any temporary backup file on either of the systems and also without using any external library's (such as libvirt). I want to use KVM's original commands to take this backup.

Also please let me know what are the KVM api's that are available in KVM installaing package by default.

Any help in this regard will be appriciated.
Thanks in advance
