Hello, I've just added patches that enable live migration, save and restore support to the Xen packages in ports:
https://svnweb.freebsd.org/ports?view=revision&revision=398918 This enables live migration and save/restore of HVM and PV guests from a FreeBSD/Xen PVH Dom0. Remember that in order to use live migration between hosts the hard drive of the guest must be shared (eg: NFS). A couple of notes below on it's usage: I'm not a sysadmin, but save and restore can be used in conjunction with ZFS snapshots in order to perform checkpoints of guests: # xl save -p <domain> domain.checkpoint1 # zfs snapshot <path/to/zvol>@checkpoint1 # xl unpause <domain> This will result in a save file and a ZFS snapshot that can easily be used to restore the VM to a previous known state. It should also be possible to migrate guests between a Linux and a FreeBSD Dom0 (provided there's a common shared disk storage), but I have not tested it. NB: if you don't have two hosts but still want to test it, you can do it locally: # xl migrate <domain> localhost Roger. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-virtualization To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-virtualization-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
