Date: Wed, 20 Dec 2017 18:49:32 +0300

Hi all!

There is a new version of dirty bitmap postcopy migration series.


clone: tag postcopy-v9 from https://src.openvz.org/scm/~vsementsov/qemu.git
online: https://src.openvz.org/users/vsementsov/repos/qemu/browse?at=postcopy-v9

01: r-b John
02: was incomplete, now add here bdrv_reclaim_dirty_bitmap fix
03: new
04: new
05: r-b John
07: fix type in commit message, r-b John
09: add comment about is_active_iterate, r-b Snow and keep Juan's r-b, hope 
comment is ok
10: change copyright to Virtuozzo
    reword comment at the top of the file
    rewrite init_dirty_bitmap_migration, to not do same things twice (John)
      and skip _only_ unnamed bitmaps, error out for unnamed nodes (John)
    use new "locked" state of bitmaps instead of frozen on source vm
    do not support migrating bitmap to existent one with the same name,
      keep only create-new-bitmap way
    break loop in dirty_bitmap_load_complete when bitmap is found
    use bitmap locking instead of context acquire
12: rewrite, to add more cases. (note, that 169 iotest is also in my
    "[PATCH v2 0/3] fix bitmaps migration through shared storage", which 
probably should
    go to qemu-stable. So this patch should rewrite it, but here I make it like 
new patch,
    to simplify review. When "[PATCH v2..." merged I'll rebase this on it), 
drop r-b
13: move to separate test, drop r-b


clone: tag postcopy-v8.1 from https://src.openvz.org/scm/~vsementsov/qemu.git

05: fix compilation, add new version for cmma_save_pending too.


clone: tag postcopy-v8 from https://src.openvz.org/scm/~vsementsov/qemu.git
online: https://src.openvz.org/users/vsementsov/repos/qemu/browse?at=postcopy-v8

- rebased on master
- patches 01-03 from v7 are already merged to master
- patch order is changed to make it possible to merge block/dirty-bitmap patches
  in separate if is needed
01: new patch
03: fixed to use _locked version of bdrv_release_dirty_bitmap
06: qapi-schema.json -> qapi/migration.json
    2.9 -> 2.11
10: protocol changed a bit:
  instead of 1 byte "bitmap enabled flag" this byte becomes just "flags"
  and have "enabled", "persistent" and "autoloading" flags inside.
  also, make all migrated bitmaps to be not persistent (to prevent their
  storing on source vm)
14: new patch

patches status:
01-04 - are only about block/dirty-bitmap and have no r-b. Fam, John, Paolo 
(about bitmap lock),
    please look at. These patches are ok to be merged in separate (but before 
other patches are about migration
05-09 has Juan's r-b (and some of them has John's and Eric's r-bs)
10 - the main patch (dirty bitmaps migration), has no r-b.
11 - preparation for tests, not related to migration directly, has Max's r-b, 
ok to be merged
    separately (but before 12-14)
12-14 - tests, 12 and 13 have Max's r-b, 14 is new


clone: tag postcopy-v7 from https://src.openvz.org/scm/~vsementsov/qemu.git
online: https://src.openvz.org/users/vsementsov/repos/qemu/browse?at=postcopy-v7

- rebased on dirty-bitmap byte-based interfaces
    (based on git://repo.or.cz/qemu/ericb.git branch nbd-byte-dirty-v4)
- migration of persistent bitmaps should fail for shared storage migration for 
  as persistent dirty bitmaps are stored/load on inactivate/invalidate-cache.
  also, even for non-shared storage migration there would be useless saving of 
  bitmaps on source. This all will be optimized later.

01: staff from include/migration/vmstate.h moved to 
include/migration/register.h (rebase)
03: some structural changes due to rebase - drop r-b
04: staff from include/migration/vmstate.h moved to 
include/migration/register.h (rebase)
    staff from include/sysemu/sysemu.h moved to migration/savevm.h (rebase)
05: fix patch header: block -> block/dirty-bitmap
    add locking, drop r-b
06: staff from include/migration/migration.h moved to migration/migration.h 
07: add locking, drop r-b
09: staff from include/migration/qemu-file.h moved to migration/qemu-file.h 
10: staff from include/migration/vmstate.h moved to 
include/migration/register.h (rebase)
11: new patch
12: a lot of changes/fixes (mostly by Fam's comments) + rebase
    header-definition movement
    remove include <assert.h>
    add some includes
    fix/refactor bitmap flags send
    byte-based interface for dirty bitmaps (rebase)
    froze bitmaps on source
    init_dirty_bitmap_migration can return error, if some of bitmaps are already
    bdrv_ref drives with bitmaps
    fprintf -> error_report
    check version_id in _load function


clone: tag postcopy-v6 from https://src.openvz.org/scm/~vsementsov/qemu.git
online: https://src.openvz.org/users/vsementsov/repos/qemu/browse?at=postcopy-v6

rebase on master.

03 - tiny contextual change

12 - little change, but it should be reviewed. Call of 
    (which only initialize mutex) moved from start of 
process_incoming_migration_co (it was
    immediately after "mis = migration_incoming_state_new(f)") to 
    to stay with initialization code.
    I remove r-b's, but hope that this will not be a problem. The only change 
in this patch - is moved
    call of init_dirty_bitmap_incoming_migration.
    I do so because of recent

commit b4b076daf324894dd288cbdb67ff1e3c7434df7b
Author: Juan Quintela <address@hidden>
Date:   Mon Jan 23 22:32:06 2017 +0100

    migration: create Migration Incoming State at init time

15 - add Max's r-b


clone: tag postcopy-v5 from https://src.openvz.org/scm/~vsementsov/qemu.git
online: https://src.openvz.org/users/vsementsov/repos/qemu/browse?at=postcopy-v5

- move 'signed-off' over 'reviewed-by' in patches.

03,04 - add comments. Hope they will be ok for you, so add Juan's r-b.
    If not ok - let me know and I'll resend.

06,08,12 - add Max's r-b
07,09,10,11,12 - add Juan's r-b

14 - used last version of this patch from qcow2-bitmap series with 
     Max's r-b. It has contextual changes due to different base.

15 - fix 041 iotest, add default node-name only if path is specified and
     node-name is not specified
16 - handle whitespaces
       s/"exec: cat " + fifo/"exec: cat '" + fifo + "'"/
     fix indentation
     add Max's r-b
17 - fix typos, wrong size in comment, s/md5/sha256/
     add Max's r-b

rebase on master!

07: since 2.8 -> since 2.9

These series are derived from my 'Dirty bitmaps migration' series. The
core idea is switch to postcopy migration and drop usage of meta

These patches provide dirty bitmap postcopy migration feature. Only
named dirty bitmaps are to be migrated. Migration may be enabled using
migration capabilities.

The overall method (thanks to John Snow):

1. migrate bitmaps meta data in .save_live_setup
   - create/find related bitmaps on target
   - disable them
   - create successors (anonimous children) only for enabled migrated
2. do nothing in precopy stage
3. just before target vm start: enable successors, created in (1)
4. migrate bitmap data
5. reclaime bitmaps (merge successors to their parents)
6. enable bitmaps (only bitmaps, which was enabled in source)

Some patches are unchnaged from (v7) of 'Dirty bitmaps migration'
(DBMv7). I've left Reviewed-by's for them, if you don't like it, say me
and I'll drop them in the following version.

So, relatively to last DBMv7: 

01-04: new patches, splitting common postcopy migration out of ram
       postcopy migration
   05: equal to DBMv7.05
   06: new
   07: equal to DBMv7.06
   08: new
   09: equal to DBMv7.07
   10: new
   11: derived from DBMv7.08, see below
12-15: equal to DBMv7.09-12
   16: derived from DBMv7.13
       - switch from fifo to socket, as postcopy don't work with fifo
         for now
       - change parameters: size, granularity, regions
       - add time.sleep, to wait for postcopy migration phase (bad
         temporary solution.
       - drop Reviewed-by
   17: new

   11: the core patch of the series, it is derived from
       [DBMv7.08: migration: add migration_block-dirty-bitmap.c]
       There are a lot of changes related to switching from precopy to
       postcopy, but functions related to migration stream itself
       (structs, send/load sequences) are mostly unchnaged.

       So, changes, to switch from precopy to postcopy:
       - removed all staff related to meta bitmaps and dirty phase!!!
       - add dirty_bitmap_mig_enable_successors, and call it before
         target vm start in loadvm_postcopy_handle_run
       - add enabled_bitmaps list of bitmaps for

       - enabled flag is send with start bitmap chunk instead of
         completion chunk
       - sectors_per_chunk is calculated directly from CHUNK_SIZE, not
         using meta bitmap granularity

       - dirty_bitmap_save_iterate: remove dirty_phase, move bulk_phase
         to postcopy stage
       - dirty_bitmap_save_pending: remove dirty phase related pending,
         switch pending to non-postcopyable
       - dirty_bitmap_load_start: get enabled flag and prepare
         successors for enabled bitmaps, also add them to
         enabled_bitmaps list
       - dirty_bitmap_load_complete: for enabled bitmaps: merge them
         with successors and enable

       - savevm handlers:
         * remove separate savevm_dirty_bitmap_live_iterate_handlers state
           (it was bad idea, any way), and move its save_live_iterate to
         * add is_active_iterate savevm handler, which allows iterations
           only in postcopy stage (after stopping source vm)
         * add has_postcopy savevm handler. (ofcourse, just returning true)
         * use save_live_complete_postcopy instead of

       Other changes:
       - some debug output changed
       - remove MIN_LIVE_SIZE, is_live_iterative and related staff (it
         was needed to omit iterations if bitmap data is small, possibly
         this should be reimplemented)
