[libvirt] 答复: Help:Can libvirt resto re several xen snapshots more faster at same time?



Dear libvirt expert:
	Thanks for your reply.
	May be our description is not suitable, in last message,'snapshot' means the domain state file which 'virsh save ' generate.

	Our project detailed steps are as follows:
	1) create 40 xen guestOS by 'vrish create xen*.xml' 
	2) save 40 guest OS to domain state file by 'virsh save' cmd
	3) Start multiple processes, each process cycle to do the following job:
		a)virsh restore the domain state file
		b)do same job in guest OS in 20 seconds
		c)virsh destroy the guest OS

	We need higher performance on the project , so our question is these as last message:
	1)	each our xen state file is almost same except IP address(Win7 OS with 1G memory), does there have some way to reduce the 40 state file space? 
	2)	Do you have some suggestion to improve the performance of restore as much as  xen state file at same time?

Best regards, wish for your reply.

You'll have to define "snapshots", since the libvirt Xen drivers do not support any of the virDomainSnapshot* APIs. By snapshot do you mean saving domain state to a file with e.g. 'virsh save ...'?

Maybe I'm being dense, but it is still not clear to me what you mean by "snapshot", or how your snapshots are created and restored.
