+=item B<offline>
+
+The virtual CPU is offline and not usable by the domain.
+This state is not supported by all hypervisors.
+
+=item B<running>
+
+The virtual CPU is available to the domain and is operating.
+
+=item B<blocked>
+
+The virtual CPU is available to the domain but is waiting for a resource.
+This state is not supported by all hypervisors, in which case I<running>
+may be reported instead.
+
+=item B<no state>
+
+The virtual CPU state could not be determined. This could happen if
+the hypervisor is newer than virsh.
+
+=item B<N/A>
+
+There's no information about the virtual CPU state available. This can
+be the case if the domain is not running or the hypervisor does
+not report the virtual CPU state.
