Thanks for doing this, this would help for digging problems.

One HIGH report has been solved the last weekend, and I have been changed it.
and I tried to solve the other one(https://bugs.launchpad.net/tempest/+bug/1213209),
but I cannot find the way.
This seems a libvirt problem, but we don't have some log file under /var/log/libvirt in gate tests.
Can we add these log files to gate tests for digging this kind of problems?

I feel these steps are nice, thanks!
