[Qemu-devel] [RFC PATCH v4 00/28] COarse-grain LOck-stepping(COLO) Virtu

Subject: [Qemu-devel] [RFC PATCH v4 00/28] COarse-grain LOck-stepping(COLO) Virtual Machines for Non-stop Service
Date: Thu, 26 Mar 2015 13:29:06 +0800

This is the 4th version of COLO, here is only COLO frame part, include: VM 
failover, proxy API, block replication API, not include block replication.
The block part has been sent by wencongyang:
[RFC PATCH COLO v2 00/13] Block replication for continuous checkpoints

Compared with last version, there aren't too much optimize and new functions.
The main reason is that there is an known issue that still unsolved, we found
some dirty pages which have been missed setting bit in corresponding bitmap.
And it will trigger strange problem in VM.
We hope to resolve it before add more codes.

You can get the newest integrated qemu colo patches from github:

About how to test COLO, Please reference to the follow link.

Please review and test.

Known issue still unsolved:
(1) Some pages dirtied without setting its corresponding dirty-bitmap.

Previous posted RFC patch series:

TODO list:
1 Optimize the process of checkpoint, shorten the time-consuming:
  (Partly done, patch is not include into this series)
   1) separate ram and device save/load process to reduce size of extra memory
      used during checkpoint
   2) live migrate part of dirty pages to slave during sleep time.
2 Add more debug/stat info
  (Partly done, patch is not include into this series)
  include checkpoint count, proxy discompare count, downtime,
   number of live migrated pages, total sent pages, etc.
3 Strengthen failover
4 optimize proxy part, include proxy script.
5 The capability of continuous FT

- New block replication scheme (use image-fleecing for sencondary side)
- Adress some comments from Eric Blake and Dave
- Add commmand colo-set-checkpoint-period to set the time of periodic checkpoint
- Add a delay (100ms) between continuous checkpoint requests to ensure VM
  run 100ms at least since last pause.

- use proxy instead of colo agent to compare network packets
- add block replication
- Optimize failover disposal
- handle shutdown

- use QEMUSizedBuffer/QEMUFile as COLO buffer
- colo support is enabled by default
- add nic replication support
- addressed comments from Eric Blake and Dr. David Alan Gilbert

- implement the frame of colo
