Subject Re: KVM - VM snapshot (round 2)
Date Mon, 08 Dec 2014 11:32:03 GMT
As far as I know, KVM does support memory snapshot.
The shortcoming is libvirt-java supports only internal snapshot (not
external snapshots) for now.
In this case, the memory snapshot will be attached to the qcow2 file, and
the qcow2 will grow even after we remove the memory snapshot.

I've changed and tested on 4.2 before, but not pushed into production.

An email from the Mice, the developer of this functionality:
