Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache CloudStack 4.5.0 RC1
Date Tue, 20 Jan 2015 17:01:43 GMT
I'd suggest in LibvirtComputingResource we wrap the call to
clock.setTimer for kvmclock in a libvirt version check and change the
parameters passed based on that (see  variable
_hypervisorLibvirtVersion). I haven't tracked down exactly which
version shipped it, but it seems like someone was 'cleaning up'
libvirt and perhaps enforced that kvmclock doesn't take options:

http://libvirt.org/git/?p=libvirt.git;a=commitdiff;h=bbd392ff86249434ca63bb5977d2b1bd2d72a538

"- kvmclock: no extra attributes are supported"

In general, we want kvmclock, and it should only be disabled if
there's an issue (e.g. it has broken live migration in the past with
certain qemu and kernel versions).

I am confused about one thing, you mention this only shows up when you
add volumes, correct? Is that attaching a volume to a VM with these
settings? Is the clock XML somehow getting added to the volume?
