Subject Re: KVM - VM snapshot (round 2)
Date Mon, 08 Dec 2014 11:21:52 GMT
With KVM - I understand that there are 2 steps in general. 1) libvirts save
 - which saves memory of running VM to a file 2) qemu-img to snapshot
disks...

AS for the KVM VM snapshoting - my understanding is that the code is not
implemented at all, right ?
