Hi Cedric,

could you send me your complete xml file?
I get the error: process exited while connecting to monitor: 
2020-08-03T17:43:50.146851Z qemu-system-x86_64: The -accel and "-machine 
accel=" options are incompatible.

Best regards

    Again, with a correct answer,

    On a Power9 host (20.04), I did the following changes to an x86 domain :

      <domain type='qemu' 

    and at the end of the domain file  :
        <qemu:arg value='-accel'/>
        <qemu:arg value='tcg,thread=multi'/>

    The topology is defined as : 

      <cpu mode='custom' match='exact' check='none'>
        <model fallback='forbid'>qemu64</model>
        <topology sockets='1' cores='12' threads='2'/>

    The VM is using MTTCG, as reported by top on the host :

        PID USER      PR  NI    VIRT    RES    SHR S  %CPU  %MEM     TIME+
