Subject Re: Live migration ip address with kvm
Date Fri, 13 Feb 2015 05:49:11 GMT
It's not a good idea to use resource tags. Resource tags should not be
used by CloudStack itself to do business logic, just for arbitrary
metadata the admin may want.

The trick is that you want the source host to know that the
destination host has a secondary IP that can be used for live
migration.  To do it right you'd probably want to add a field to the
host table, a new parameter to the AddHostCmd api call, and pass that
migration IP along with MigrateCommand to the hypervisor. Once you do
that then the info is available to all of the hypervisor plugins to
use.

Outside of that, there are hacks that would allow this but they're at
least as much work as what I described above with the only benefit
being that you can avoid modifying the CloudStack code (writing api,
agent plugins). The easiest way would probably be to reconfigure the
network to allow mgmt traffic through a trunk on the 10G interfaces.
