Re: [libvirt] save/ restore a domain with kvm



Thanks

a Question if I may.
Are you familiar with the cpuTime of a  VM that we get by libvirt from 
virDomainInfoPtr  struct .
Is that the real cpuTime of all the vcpus of a VM  together  ?
e.g   if I  sample this cpuTime   at 2 times apart by 'n' secs  and get 
cpuTime1 and cpuTime2 , then if  the  VM has 4 vcpus and they are fully 
utilized,
 I will get :  (vcpuTime- vcpuTime1) =  4 *n  . That is  each of the 4 
vcpus are fully utilizing the 'n' secs .


thanks

Save-restore on upstream kvm versions is rather error prone.
I'm note sure one version is better than the other. Evan today mainline 
kvm's
migration is not stable. We'll send patches this week to fix that.

So bottom line, if it works for you, use it.
