Sets the type of the monitor. QEMU has two types of monitors:

  • The regular, also known as Human monitor, intended for interaction with people (but also very much used by other tools, Autotest inclusive)
  • The QMP monitor, a monitor that speaks the QMP protocol.

To set the default monitor type to be a QMP monitor:

monitor_type = qmp

To set the type of a specific monitor use:

monitor_type_humanmonitor1 = human
