Re: [libvirt] [V2]RFC for support cache tune in libvirt



Hi Martin,

Thanks for your comments, it’s really helpful, I’v changed some of the design and with some PoC code.
And will later sent the v3 version of cachetune for libvirt, will add you in CC list.

I have some PoC code based on 3.0.0, not finished yet. But I’v learned that 3.0.0 will be released soon, seems there will be some rebase work to do.


Best Regards

    I replied to that and since I was going through the mail
    chronologically, and this is not a reply to that one, I am getting to
    this one only now.

    Where would be this option?  In libvirtd.conf?  Why?

    Why does this have to be statically limited?

    So if I want to clear it out, I do "cachetune --enable false"?  That's a
    mouthful.

    <cachetune> sounds fine, but the rest... enabled=no doesn't make sense,
    same as actual_size=0, but I guess that's just the same thing.  It's
    also missing code/data differentiation.  And socket/vCPU information.
