There is an article about this
http://cloud-mate.org/2015/06/enable-snapshot-kvm-cloudstack/

It seems VM snapshots are not supported in KVM. You can try tweaking a table 
hypervisor_capabilites and set  vm_snapshot_enabled to 1 for hypervisor KVM but 
I doubt this will be successful. You probably are left with disk snapshots on 
KVM.

    I already enable snapshot and restart cloudstack management. But when I try 
to do snapshot got error (refer link: https://postimg.org/image/uiz45le7r/). 
Any idea why?

    You might need to change global setting kvm.snapshot.enabled to True

        After stopping a instance/VM's, there are no icon for snapshot also 
(refer link: https://postimg.org/image/3lthssprd/). There can only do snapshot 
on volume.

        From what I see, it’s impossible to do snapshot on KVM while 
instance/VM’s still running. It’s need to stop and the icon will appear after 
instance/VM’s completely stop.

        Hello Zainal,
        
        
        
        There are two type of snapshot ,
        
        
        
        1- VM's snapshot
        
        2- disk snapshot
        
        
        
        and yes you can take either VM's snapshot or disk snapshot from running 
vm's

        Hi,
        
        
        
        Is it possible to do snapshot while instance is running? Or need to stop
        instance and do snapshot? Please advice.
