The IGuest interface represents information about the operating system running inside the virtual machine.
Used in IConsole::guest.
IGuest provides information about the guest operating system, whether Guest Additions are installed and other OS-specific virtual machine properties.

Internal method; do not use as it might change at any time.
|cpuUser||Percentage of processor time spent in user mode as seen by the guest.|
|cpuKernel||Percentage of processor time spent in kernel mode as seen by the guest.|
|cpuIdle||Percentage of processor time spent idling as seen by the guest.|
|memTotal||Total amount of physical guest RAM.|
|memFree||Free amount of physical guest RAM.|
|memBalloon||Amount of ballooned physical guest RAM.|
|memShared||Amount of shared physical guest RAM.|
|memCache||Total amount of guest (disk) cache memory.|

|memSharedTotal||Total amount of shared memory in the hypervisor.|
|void IGuest::getFacilityStatus||(||in AdditionsFacilityType||facility,|
|out long long||timestamp,|
|[retval] out AdditionsFacilityStatus||status|
Get the current status of a Guest Additions facility.
|facility||Facility to check status for.|
|timestamp||Timestamp (in ms) of last status update seen by the host.|
|status||The current (latest) facility status.|
|void IGuest::getAdditionsStatus||(||in AdditionsRunLevelType||level,|
|[retval] out boolean||active|
Retrieve the current status of a certain Guest Additions run level.
|level||Status level to check|
|active||Flag whether the status level has been reached or not|
|VBOX_E_NOT_SUPPORTED||Wrong status level specified.|
|void IGuest::setCredentials||(||in wstring||userName,|
Store login credentials that can be queried by guest operating systems with Additions installed.
The credentials are transient to the session and the guest may also choose to erase them. Note that the caller cannot determine whether the guest operating system has queried or made use of the credentials.
|userName||User name string, can be empty|
|password||Password string, can be empty|
|domain||Domain name (guest logon scheme specific), can be empty|
|allowInteractiveLogon||Flag whether the guest should alternatively allow the user to interactively specify different credentials. This flag might not be supported by all versions of the Additions.|
|VBOX_E_VM_ERROR||VMM device is not available.|
|void IGuest::createSession||(||in wstring||user,|
|[retval] out IGuestSession||guestSession|
Creates a new guest session for controlling the guest.
The new session will be started asynchronously, meaning on return of this function it is not guaranteed that the guest session is in a started and/or usable state. To wait for successful startup, use the IGuestSession::waitFor call.
A guest session represents one impersonated user account in the guest, so every operation will use the same credentials specified when creating the session object via IGuest::createSession. Anonymous sessions, that is, sessions without specifying a valid user account in the guest are not allowed reasons of security.
There can be a maximum of 32 sessions at once per VM. An error will be returned if this has been reached.
For more information please consult IGuestSession
|user||User name this session will be using to control the guest; has to exist and have the appropriate rights to execute programs in the VM. Must not be empty.|
|password||Password of the user account to be used. Empty passwords are allowed.|
|domain||Domain name of the user account to be used if the guest is part of a domain. Optional. This feature is not implemented yet.|
|sessionName||The session's friendly name. Optional, can be empty.|
|guestSession||The newly created session object.|
|void IGuest::findSession||(||in wstring||sessionName,|
|[retval] out IGuestSession||sessions|
Finds guest sessions by their friendly name and returns an interface array with all found guest sessions.
|sessionName||The session's friendly name to find. Wildcards like ? and * are allowed.|
|sessions||Array with all guest sessions found matching the name specified.|
|void IGuest::updateGuestAdditions||(||in wstring||source,|
|[retval] out IProgress||progress|
Automatically updates already installed Guest Additions in a VM.
At the moment only Windows guests are supported.
Because the VirtualBox Guest Additions drivers are not WHQL-certified yet there might be warning dialogs during the actual Guest Additions update. These need to be confirmed manually in order to continue the installation process. This applies to Windows 2000 and Windows XP guests and therefore these guests can't be updated in a fully automated fashion without user interaction. However, to start a Guest Additions update for the mentioned Windows versions anyway, the flag AdditionsUpdateFlag_WaitForUpdateStartOnly can be specified. See AdditionsUpdateFlag for more information.
|source||Path to the Guest Additions .ISO file to use for the update.|
|arguments||Optional command line arguments to use for the Guest Additions installer. Useful for retrofitting features which weren't installed before in the guest.|
|progress||Progress object to track the operation completion.|
|readonly attribute wstring IGuest::OSTypeId|
|readonly attribute AdditionsRunLevelType IGuest::additionsRunLevel|

|readonly attribute wstring IGuest::additionsVersion|
Version of the installed Guest Additions in the same format as IVirtualBox::version.
|readonly attribute unsigned long IGuest::additionsRevision|
The internal build revision number of the installed Guest Additions.
See also IVirtualBox::revision.
|readonly attribute IGuestDnDSource IGuest::dnDSource|
Retrieves the drag'n drop source implementation for the guest side, that is, handling and retrieving drag'n drop data from the guest.
|readonly attribute IGuestDnDTarget IGuest::dnDTarget|
Retrieves the drag'n drop source implementation for the host side.
This will allow the host to handle and initiate a drag'n drop operation to copy data from the host to the guest.
|readonly attribute IEventSource IGuest::eventSource|
Event source for guest events.
|readonly attribute IAdditionsFacility  IGuest::facilities|
Returns a collection of current known facilities.

Returns a collection of all opened guest sessions.
|attribute unsigned long IGuest::memoryBalloonSize|
Guest system memory balloon size in megabytes (transient property).
|attribute unsigned long IGuest::statisticsUpdateInterval|
