I just presented a talk on “Debugging the Virtualization layer (libvirt and QEMU) in OpenStack” at LinuxCon/CloudOpen Europe that is currently happening in Dublin, Ireland.
Slides are located here.
While the Linux Foundation’s colocated events (LinuxCon/KVMForum/CloudOpen, Plumbers and a bunch of others) are still in progress (Düsseldorf, Germany), thought I’d quickly write a note here.
Some slides and demo notes on managing snapshots/disk image chains with libvirt/QEMU. And, some additional examples with a bit of commentary. (Thanks to Eric Blake, of libvirt project, for reviewing some of the details there.)
KVMForum, CloudOpen, LinuxCon and several other co-located events are starting next week in Edinburgh.
Edit: Notes from my presentation (http://sched.co/14wjVpS) on Nested Virt (KVM on KVM) — http://kashyapc.fedorapeople.org/virt/lc-2013/nested-virt-kvm-on-kvm-CloudOpen-Eu-2013-Kashyap-Chamarthy.pdf
While talking to Amit (thanks!) on IRC, he asked if I ever managed to take notes from the talks I attended at KVM Forum 2012 (side note – that page is up2date with slides from most talks). I did scribble some incoherent notes, but forgot to blog about it. Here we go — http://kashyapc.fedorapeople.org/virt/kvm-forum-2012-notes.txt
My LinuxCon 2012 slides/demo( & more elaborate technical article) on Virtual machine snapshots with Libvirt/QEMU are here — http://kashyapc.fedorapeople.org/virt/lc-2012/
LinuxCon, KVM Forum, Ovirt & Gluster workshops are all co-located events in Barcelona from 5th-Nov-2012 to 9th-Nov-2012. I’ll also be presenting a talk/demo on Virtual machine snapshots at LinuxCon.
