Re: QEMU-img convert question

Thank you for taking the time to review my query. I will try to elaborate.

What do I mean by "Does the application work as a completely standalone 
application?"
    - Does the application at any time reach out to the internet for any reason 
during execution?
    - Does it share any meta-data, retrieve updated instructions, or anything 
else?
    - Basically, if I put a packet sniffer between my computer and the 
internet, would the packet sniffer find even one packet that was sent or 
received as a result of executing the listed command?

Thank you again in advance,
Jay

    No. The image stays on the computer on which this command is run.

    I have no idea what that means. If you mean it is separate from
    qemu-system-<arch>, then yes, but it's usually part of the same
    package.
