Yes , but not only. I'm using oVirt - a KVM management tool and I can currently make a snapshot only by pausing the VM or by completely stopping it first. For now, it's not a big deal - as I'm still exploring openBSD , but who knows. Also the management interface cannot provide details about CPU and RAM usage , nor I cannot gracefully shut the VM down from the interface. The oVirt manager allows automatic evacuation of the VM, if it requires more memory/cpu than the host can currently providing (for a lab overcommitting is normal).
I'm just looking to enable those fancy things that make our life easier.
