Re: [libvirt] [PATCH 2/2] Reload snapshots on SIGHUP

On receiving SIGHUP, libvirtd currently only reloads all persistent

Copy code from qemudStartup() to qemudReload() to iterate over all
domains and call qemuDomainSnapshotLoad() for every domain.

Are you sure this is still relevant? In my testing, after this was applied, I got lots of errors:

10:58:09.987: 15794: error : virDomainSnapshotAssignDef:11113 : internal error unexpected domain snapshot 1308171632 already exists

and without the patch, it looked to me like the snapshots were still all present in memory across SIGHUP without reloading them from disk. I have to wonder if commit 6766ff10d made the difference in how things are behaving? Perhaps your patch is still needed, but if so, can you give me the test scenario you used that shows the difference in behavior pre- and post-patch?

Were you hand-modifying the contents of /var/lib/libvirt/qemu/snapshot/dom/*.xml behind libvirt's back and expecting the SIGHUP to have libvirt incorporate the new xml contents from the disk? Are you missing a step that nukes all existing snapshot data in memory before re-reading snapshot data from the disk?
