GSoC 2020 Salt Virt Advanced Performance Tuning Support



Hello Libvirt community

This is my first time working on a GSoC project with Libvirt. SaltStack is an open-source project that facilitates configuration management for IT infrastructures and Virt is a module of SaltStack.

The following 9 PRs summerizes the work I have done during this summer. The goal is to make existing Libvirt API domain properties configurable in Salt Virt in order to support advanced performance tuning.  5 PRs have been merged so far and another 4 are under reviewing. Although all basic unit tests have passed, I believe more rigorous tests are needed before using these features in production. I will spend more time later on adding more tests.
