Thanks, i see. Eric, if you have free time, could you please give me some
suggestions about following qestions, thanks in advance ;-)

Morita added network disk support for Libvirt, which supported
nbd, rbd, sheepdog, and other protocols. Now, i wanna test
network disk support for sheepdog solely. I have following questions.

1, Before this test, whether should i build the environment of sheepdog
    or other projects (QEMU)?

2,  How could i test network disk support of sheepdog in Libvirt? Which
     steps should i do for it?

3, Network disk support can support online storage management, right?
