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
