Real-Time KVM for the Masses - Jan Kiszka

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There are more and more reasons to improve KVM for hosting guests with real-time requirements, like migrating existing RT systems or virtualizing network functions. Many low-level optimizations have been done already. What is missing yet is integration with a complete management stack so that users do not have to tune every detail themselves. In this talk, we will present concepts and first results of an ongoing project to enable a stack of Preempt-RT Linux, QEMU/KVM, libvirt and OpenStack for RT CPU and network virtualization. Derived from a generic use case, we will describe UI extensions and changes to other OpenStack services. We will look into new tasks of libvirt when applying real-time on the computing nodes. We will describe the integration with QEMU/KVM and provide an update on the RT quality level that can be achieved. Our talk closes with plans and ideas for future work.
