In order to collect more information about CPU information internal guest OS, we usually need to get vCPU’s thread ID in host OS. Solution 1: Under directory ‘/sys/fs/cgroup/cpuset/machine’, you will find virtual_machine_name.libvirt-qemu directory. And under this directory, you will find all vCPU sub-directories and under these dirs, you will find vCPU thread IDs. For example […]
General question for developers to access data between VM and VMM. As I know, paravirtualization solution is a good way to share data for VM and VMM since it has better performance. Please use Virtio 9p solution for QEMU/KVM. Note that you need to load 9p related modules for guest kernel. Add following in your […]

Sometimes, we may want to know the specific benchmark can cause what kind of VM exits. 1, Install perf. 2, # perf kvm stat record -a ^C 3, # perf kvm stat report This will report your VM exit numbers and what kind of operation lead to VM exit. You may need to compare many […]
When we create VMs in KVM, we may don’t know the IP addresses because they are automatically assigned by DHCP. So we want to get them in VMM so that can login by SSH. Do the commands as follows. $ virsh domiflist hvm1 Interface Type Source Model MAC ——————————————————- vnet0 network default virtio 52:54:00:1c:36:cd $ […]
libvirt uses files for VM images by default under /var/lib/libvirt/images/. LVM is a convenient tool for managing VM images. How to use LVM groups with libvirt? This post discusses the method to add LVM groups as a storage pool for libvirt: http://ailoo.net/2011/02/use-a-lvm-volume-group-with-libvirt/ For a general introduction of the storage management in libvirt, please check: http://libvirt.org/storage.html […]
