G.3.  Remote logging via virtio

The Anaconda installer can communicate with a KVM host when Fedora is installed as a virtual machine. By configuring the guest to use a virtio char device, logs are forwarded early in the installation and in real time. Anaconda will automatically use the port /dev/virtio-ports/org.fedoraproject.anaconda.log.0 if available.

G.3.1.  virtio logging with virt-install

To create a log channel when creating a virtual machine with virtio, use the --channel option:
         --channel tcp,host=,mode=connect,target_type=virtio,name=org.fedoraproject.anaconda.log.0
