which is the difference between the guest agent qemu-ga-x64.msi and the spice agent = couple vdservice + vdagent for a windows guest ?
are they exclusive ou complementary ?



  • qemu-ga handles things like shutdown, rebooting vms, freezing and thawing filesystems (for live backups)
  • spice agent handles device redirection (I think), cutting and pasting in and out of VMs, smooth mouse movement inside vm-viewer, and so on.
