RHBA-2018:2769 libvirt bug fix update
Updated libvirt packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.
The libvirt library contains a C API for managing and interacting with the virtualization capabilities of Linux and other operating systems. In addition, libvirt provides tools for remote management of virtualized systems.
This update fixes the following bug:
* Previously, repeated restarts of certain virtualization clients caused the libvirtd service to consume excessive memory. This update improves the way libvirtd handles closing clients, which prevents the memory leak from occurring. (BZ#1619206)
Users of libvirt are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug. After installing the updated packages, libvirtd will be restarted automatically.
