Re: [libvirt-users] Determine ongoing shutdown via libvirt or preventing migrations to host

Hi Daniel,

Thank you for your reply. I agree that runlevel is not directly related to VM management so it is OK, that it is not implemented in libvirt library. What about prevention of VM migrations, is it acceptable to just close migration port in firewall ?

Thank you

Hi list,

Is there any function in libvirt to determine runlevel of host or
any possibility to prevent VM migrations to that host ?

I'm developing simple cluster of 4 servers running KVM VMs. For
management I decided to use python-libvirt. It is working in that
way, that every VM is diskless and booting via PXE so I can run it
on every host server. Every VM has assigned one host as monitor
which is responsible to periodically check, that VM is running on
one of other hosts. If it don't run, it will be started on first
available server assigned for that VM. When one of hosts is shut
down, it will migrate all VMs to another hosts, but that monitor
which checks VMs will migrate it after reboot. But I have race
condition there that monitors can check that host is running before
it is shutdown and will migrate VM's back to server which will

Thank you for any help

That kind of policy decision making is outside the scope of
libvirt I'm afraid. The higher level management tools using
libvirt would need to figure out that kind of stuff.
