Subject [jira] [Created] (CLOUDSTACK-1158) Wrap qemu-img in objects instead of using simpleBashScript
Date Tue, 05 Feb 2013 12:57:12 GMT
Wido den Hollander created CLOUDSTACK-1158:

             Summary: Wrap qemu-img in objects instead of using simpleBashScript
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-1158
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: KVM
    Affects Versions: 4.0.0
            Reporter: Wido den Hollander
             Fix For: 4.2.0

Currently when we are doing something with qemu-img in the KVM Agent we do things like this:

String result = executeBashScript("qemu-img --help|grep convert");
Script.runSimpleBashScript("qemu-img convert"

This is not reliable and could be fixed by wrapping qemu-img like this:

QemuImg.convert(String sourceFormat, String source, String destFormat, string dest);

This could then handle all  the stuff like checking the output and more importantly also checking
the exit status of Qemu to see if everything works.

It could throw exceptions where needed so it makes life easier when doing such operations
in the KVM Agent.

Hopefully we can then also get rid of all kinds of bash scripts being called by the KVM Agent.
