systemctl stop qmeventd
systemctl status qmeventd


qmeventd is a daemon that listens on PATH for incoming connections from a qemu qmp socket, and waits for SHUTDOWN events. When a client then disconnects, it executes /usr/sbin/qm cleanup. This makes it easy to clean up leftover tap devices, vgpus, etc.
