First, I think you meant to put XenServer, KVM, and VMware and not XenServer 3 times in a row.
 That being said I think in all cases (somebody correct me if I'm wrong here) it goes something
like this:

Live Migration: Request is made by CS but carried out by the HV.
High Availability: More accurately it's "recovery after host failure" because it's still a
disruptive action when a host goes sideways, but by default this is handled by CS.  I _think_
there's an option to let the HV handle this but I'm not totally sure.
DRS: Managed by CS through one of several methods with the global setting vm.allocation.algorithm
(see below)

'random', 'firstfit', 'userdispersing', 'userconcentratedpod_random', 'userconcentratedpod_firstfit'
: Order in which hosts within a cluster will be considered for VM/volume allocation.

That being said, after deployment there isn't any further DRS monitoring; it's only done at
the time an instance is instantiated.

Subject: Hypervisor Questions

Hi,

I was wondering if people could clarify for me what CloudStack manages versus what the hypervisor
manages in terms of live migration, high availability, and distributed resource scheduling?

I know it is probably different for XenServer, VMware, and KVM.

Can people fill in the info below (managed by the management server, the hypervisor, or some
combination of both)?

XenServer
   Live migration:
   High availability:
   Distributed Resource Scheduling:

XenServer
   Live migration:
   High availability:
   Distributed Resource Scheduling:

XenServer
   Live migration:
   High availability:
   Distributed Resource Scheduling:

Thanks!
