QEMU Hotplug Infrastructure and Implementing PCI Hotplug for PowerKVM - Michael Roth

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

Just as with physical machines, the ability to hotplug resources into virtual machines is a commonly used and often critical feature for allowing users to modify network/storage/cpu/memory configurations for running guest instances without incurring unecessary downtime. This talk provides an overview of the infrastructure within QEMU to handle hotplug/unplug operations, device lifecycles, and how this infrastructure is used for various platforms/resources. It will also go into detail on how this infrastructure was used for implementing PCI hotplug for PowerKVM guests.
