If you are running the cloud-image with QEMU, it can in some cases\* be beneficial to run the [QEMU guest-agent](https://wiki.qemu.org/Features/GuestAgent). This can be done with the following user-data:
```yaml
#cloud-config
packages:
- qemu-guest-agent
runcmd:
- [ systemctl, daemon-reload ]
- [ systemctl, enable, qemu-ga ]
- [ systemctl, start, qemu-ga ]
```
*\*ex: when using [Proxmox](https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Qemu-guest-agent) or [oVirt](https://www.ovirt.org/develop/internal/guest-agent/understanding-guest-agents-and-other-tools.html). Please be aware, that the agent basically gives the host root access to the guest.*
