Subject RE: [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-684) Support VM Snapshot
Date Thu, 24 Jan 2013 04:03:16 GMT
Hi Mice,

This is great - is this ready for all 3 platforms? Also, how many of these use cases (listed
in the spec link) are covered? All of them?

    Create snapshot for a specified VM
    Revert VM to a specified snapshot
    Delete a specified snapshot
    List snapshots for a specified VM

    Support creating of 'VM' snapshots (“preserve the state and data of a VM at a specific
point in time.“) of both a powered on and powered off VM
        Able to provide choices for  a) if memory state is needed b) if file system needs
to be quiesced if the VM is powered on
    Remove a snapshot and delete any associated storage
    Remove all snapshots of a VM
    Revert to a snapshot
    Admin can place a limit on the number of stored snapshots per user
    Users can create snapshots manually or by setting up automatic recurring snapshot policies**
Snapshots can be created on an hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly interval. One snapshot policy
can be set up per VM
    With each snapshot schedule, users can also specify the number of scheduled snapshots
to be retained** Older snapshots that exceed the retention limit are automatically deleted.

        This user-defined limit must be equal to or lower than the global limit set by the
CloudStack administrator. 
        The limit applies only to those snapshots that are taken as part of an automatic recurring
snapshot policy. Additional manual snapshots can be created and retained
