I've only successfully tested using virt-manager to do snapshots.  There is
a way using virsh, doing "snapshot-create domain", but I receive an error
due to lack of that feature.

error: internal error unable to execute QEMU command 'savevm': The command
savevm has not been found

Using the virsh "save" command works, but only does it without shutting down
the VM if done through virt-manager.  Other tools that look promising for
snapshots thus far are things like Convirt, OpenQRM, and Archipel, but I
have yet to get them in production to test that out.
