If `virt_type = kvm` is set, then yes, your instance should be using
You can confirm it in a couple of ways:
- Check that your Nova instance's QEMU process has this in its QEMU
command-line: "-machine accel=kvm". (`ps -ef | grep qemu`, and look
for the relevant process.)
- SSH into your instance, run `systemd-detect-virt` (or `virt-what` if
you have it). It should report 'kvm', if KVM is really being used.
