Re: [libvirt] RFC: configuring host interfaces with libvirt



Hi all,

I think I agree with David here 

I think that some method of configuring host network interfaces is inline with configuring CPU or RAM allocations for a guest. 

You want to provision say, a new server, you might want to add a tagged VLAN bridge for it to sit off as well. Or perhaps establish a private "bridge" or subnet for it. 

At the moment, you have to set that up manually. While it can be easily standardized ( I think ) - there are some complexities ( ie MTU settings - jumbo frames, or allowing for tagged vlan overhead without appropriate hardware.. ).  

Am I inline with your thinkings, David? ;) 

cheers;
//Chris

This is far from obvious to me. Could you explain more?
