Note: I haven't tried building this on Linux yet, so we may have some
#ifdef or Makefile changes on non-Solaris platforms.
Please Cc: Eunice.Moon at Sun.COM on any response.
This patch adds the Logical Domains (LDoms) support for the SPARC
platforms. LDoms software is Sun Microsystem's virtualization technology
to subdivide a supported system's resources (CPUs, memory, I/O, and
storage) creating partitions called logical domains. The Logical Domains
Manager is used to create and manage logical domains and maps logical
domains to physical resources. The LDoms Manager provides a command-line
interface and also exports an XML-based control interface. The Libvirt
for LDoms uses this XML interface to communicate with the LDoms Manager
to retrieve the LDoms data for:
- Listing domains
- Requesting CPU and memory resource updates
- Performing life-cycle actions for logical domains
This libvirt patch supports LDoms 1.0.1 and 1.0.2.
