Vagrant Plugin for Snapping a Screenshot of All Your VMs

Read why times series is the fastest growing database category.

Developers and operations folk were grateful and excited to see the 1.0 release of Vagrant, an open source VM provisioning/management tool that seems to be coming out of obscurity with the help of the DevOps movement and specifically Patrick Debois.

New on the blogosphere today is a super-useful little Vagrant plugin from Juarez Bochi that takes screenshots for all active VMs.  

After finding a command on VBoxManage for taking VM screenshots, he decided to wrap it in a script after which Igor Sobreira, who blogged about the idea,  found out about vagrant plugins.

The result was the vagrant-screenshot plugin.  and here's Igor's usage example:
$ vagrant screenshot -o
[vagrant] Taking screenshot for default
[vagrant] Screenshot saved on screenshot-default.png

Hopefully this plugin helps a lot of Vagrant users, or brings more awareness about Vagrant's power in general.
