address@hidden man begin SYNOPSIS
+usage: kvm_stat [OPTION]...
address@hidden man end
address@hidden example
address@hidden man begin DESCRIPTION
+kvm_stat prints counts of KVM kernel module trace events.  These events signify
+state transitions such as guest mode entry and exit.
+This tool is useful for observing guest behavior from the host perspective.
+Often conclusions about performance or buggy behavior can be drawn from the
+The set of KVM kernel module trace events may be specific to the kernel version
+or architecture.  It is best to check the KVM kernel module source code for the
+meaning of events.
+Note that trace events are counted globally across all running guests.
