Subject Re: Using newer DIY SystemVMs
Date Mon, 04 Mar 2013 23:18:07 GMT
Rohit, thanks for this. I'm going to play with your system vm template
to see if we can support KVM virtio communication rather than ssh to
KVM system vms. One thing I thought I'd mention was that it might be
better to compress the qcow2 image natively (via qemu-img convert -c
flag) rather than bz2, because it is usable as compressed, which will
speed deployment of the base system vm image, and people won't have to
unzip.
