Re: [libvirt] [PATCH] rpc: allow truncated return for virDomainGetCPUStats

On 03/07/2012 12:48 PM, Eric Blake wrote:
The RPC code assumed that the array returned by the driver would be
fully populated; that is, ncpus on entry resulted in ncpus * return
value on exit.  However, while we don't support holes in the middle
of ncpus, we do want to permit the case of ncpus on entry being
longer than the array returned by the driver (that is, it should be
safe for the caller to pass ncpus=128 on entry, and the driver will
stop populating the array when it hits max_id).

There are now three cases:
server 0.9.10 and client 0.9.10 or newer: No impact - there were no
hypervisor drivers that supported cpu stats

server 0.9.11 or newer and client 0.9.10: if the client calls with
ncpus beyond the max, then the rpc call will fail on the client side
and disconnect the client, but the server is no worse for the wear

server 0.9.11 or newer and client 0.9.11: the server can return a
truncated array and the client will do just fine

I reproduced the problem by using a host with 2 CPUs, and doing:
virsh cpu-stats $dom --start 1 --count 2

* daemon/remote.c (remoteDispatchDomainGetCPUStats): Allow driver
to omit tail of array.
* src/remote/remote_driver.c (remoteDomainGetCPUStats):
Accommodate driver that omits tail of array.

Make sense, and ACK.

But do we want to add document to declare the returned array will
be truncated among the API implementation. Not neccessary though.
