Re: [libvirt] [PATCH 1/2] qemu: Add support for changing timeout value to open unix monitor socket



I agree, there is no harm in adding an option of configuration, different setup configurations require different timeout values.
my setup was 8 servers booted with PXE boot and running on nfs rootfs, with 8 vms on each.
when I tried to start all of them together the bottle neck was the network and it takes about 5 minutes till they all start.
I think a good solution will include changes in qemu's behavior, but the solution that I suggested is much better than the current state.
we would be very happy not to manage our own version of libvirt.

Silence gives consent?

Ping? Can we at least change the default [2/2] or should I send a v2
