[libvirt] libvirt-qpid



Howdy folks!

So I've been working on a qpid interface to libvirt.  Here's the description
I've come up with:

libvirt-qpid provides an interface with libvirt using QMF (qpid modeling
framework) which utilizes the AMQP protocol.  The Advanced Message Queuing
Protocol (AMQP) is an open standard application layer protocol providing
reliable transport of messages.

QMF provides a modeling framework layer on top of qpid.  This interface 
allows you to manage hosts, domains, pools etc. as a set of objects with 
properties and methods.

The source code repo:

http://git.et.redhat.com/?p=libvirt-qpid.git;a=summary

So I'd like to hear any feedback you guys might have.  This file in particular
describes the API that is used to interact with libvirt.

http://git.et.redhat.com/?p=libvirt-qpid.git;a=blob_plain;f=src/libvirt-schema.xml

My TODO list looks like this:

- Not sure on camel case or underscores.  Original libvirt API uses
camel case, I went with underscores as I was originally basing it off
the ruby bindings.
- Need rc scripts, daemonization, better reconnect/error handling for
both qpid and libvirt.  I think it should attempt to reconnect until
successful whenever it gets disconnected.  We may need an extra status
property for this state as well.
- Return libvirt error codes? (it's just text msgs right now with error
  status bit).
- Make it less chatty, but log stuff


If you wish to try it out, I've made rpms for fedora 9 x86_64 and i386.
They are in the ovirt repo, which you can add to yum using:

rpm -ivh http://ovirt.org/repos/ovirt/9/ovirt-release-LATEST.fc9.noarch.rpm

Once you have that set up, 'yum install libvirt-qpid python-qpid', and then
run (each in their own terminals):

qpidd --auth no
libvirt-qpid (as root to auth with libvirt)
qpid-tool

qpid-tool provides an interface to qpid and allows you to view/manipulate the
qpid models/objects.  Here is an example of how it looks using qpid-tool:
