Re: [libvirt] boot time delay for domains?

my solution was to make all my domains non-persistent. my application
monitors the status of the domains and re-creates them if they
disappear. this has some major advantages:

1) you can control the rate at which domains are started
2) you can restart domains if they crash
3) you can schedule tasks to perform on a domain when they're not
running (in the interval between when a domain goes down and when your
application brings it back up)
4) peace of mind -- you know for sure that random domains won't start up
when you bring up a random machine. this helps avoid vm disk corruption.
this reason will be less important once libvirt finalizes the locking
infrastructure, but right now it's critical for me
