What's this virbr0 interface in ifconfig?

I was trying to get the network monitor to my panel, when I noticed that the interface text was missing, so I simply ran ifconfig to see the interfaces that were up, and there it was. However in no other place does it seem to be configured. There's no /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-virbr0 or anything shown in 'neat'. What's this interface for? WHY does it even exist? What configured it?

Good morning Thetargos, I Googled virbr0 and found a thread here, http://forums.fedoraforum.org/forum/...d.php?t=167057. Apparently stands for virtual bridge and has to do with Xen.

Thankl Glennzo, I found out a bit after making this post, that it actually is a virtualized interface, so that VMs could access your actual eithernet/wireless connection as an ethernet device. I don't have KVM, Xen or Virtmanager installed, only quemu, but that's the one responsible for it (since it does start its service at boot). I may end up uninstalling Quemu, though.

Re: What's this virbr0 interface in ifconfig?

It comes from 'libvirt' package.
