salt.modules.xapi_virt

This module (mostly) uses the XenAPI to manage Xen virtual machines.

Big fat warning: the XenAPI used in this file is the one bundled with Xen Source, NOT XenServer nor Xen Cloud Platform. As a matter of fact it will fail under those platforms. From what I've read, little work is needed to adapt this code to XS/XCP, mostly playing with XenAPI version, but as XCP is not taking precedence on Xen Source on many platforms, please keep compatibility in mind.

salt '*' virt.migrate <vm name> <target hypervisor> [live] [port] [node] [ssl] [change_home_server]

Optional values:

live
Use live migration
port
Use a specified port
node
Use specified NUMA node on target
ssl
use ssl connection for migration
change_home_server
change home server for managed domains
salt.modules.xapi_virt.node_info()

Return a dict with information about this node

CLI Example:

salt '*' virt.node_info

Pause the named vm

CLI Example:

salt '*' virt.pause <vm name>
salt.modules.xapi_virt.reboot(vm_)

Reboot a domain via ACPI request

CLI Example:

salt.modules.xapi_virt.reset(vm_)

Reset a VM by emulating the reset button on a physical machine

CLI Example:

salt '*' virt.reset <vm name>
salt.modules.xapi_virt.resume(vm_)

Resume the named vm

CLI Example:

salt '*' virt.resume <vm name>
salt.modules.xapi_virt.setmem(vm_, memory)

Changes the amount of memory allocated to VM.

Memory is to be specified in MB

Start a defined domain

CLI Example:

salt '*' virt.start <path to Xen cfg file>
salt.modules.xapi_virt.stop(vm_)

Hard power down the virtual machine, this is equivalent to pulling the power

CLI Example:

salt '*' virt.stop <vm name>
salt.modules.xapi_virt.vcpu_pin(vm_, vcpu, cpus)

Set which CPUs a VCPU can use.

CLI Example:

salt 'foo' virt.vcpu_pin domU-id 2 1
salt 'foo' virt.vcpu_pin domU-id 2 2-6
salt.modules.xapi_virt.vm_cputime(vm_=None)

Return cputime used by the vms on this hyper in a list of dicts:

[
    'your-vm': {
        'cputime' <int>
        'cputime_percent' <int>
        },
    ...
    ]

If you pass a VM name in as an argument then it will return info for just the named VM, otherwise it will return all VMs.

CLI Example:

salt '*' virt.vm_cputime
salt.modules.xapi_virt.vm_diskstats(vm_=None)

Return disk usage counters used by the vms on this hyper in a list of dicts:

[

        'io_read_kbs'   : 0,
        'io_write_kbs'  : 0
        },
    ...
    ]

If you pass a VM name in as an argument then it will return info for just the named VM, otherwise it will return all VMs.

CLI Example:

salt '*' virt.vm_diskstats
salt.modules.xapi_virt.vm_info(vm_=None)

Return detailed information about the vms.

If you pass a VM name in as an argument then it will return info for just the named VM, otherwise it will return all VMs.

CLI Example:

salt '*' virt.vm_info
salt.modules.xapi_virt.vm_netstats(vm_=None)

Return combined network counters used by the vms on this hyper in a list of dicts:
