Bug Description

Currently, kvm_stat has a fixed sampling interval of 3 seconds. It would be advantageous to allow to modify this interval with a command line parameter. Further, a daemon mode for continuous monitoring can be useful. For this purpose, a systemd unit has to be written, which starts kvm_stat and redirects the program's output to a log file. Also a sample logrotate configuration should be part of the deliverable.

Finally, to save disk space in daemon/logging mode, empty samples should be suppressed (e.g. if no guests are running).
Business Value: Improved RAS capabilities for both test/development and production environments.

Available with kernel 5.7
