To get more details about Qemu visit the official website: http://wiki.qemu.org/Main_Page To clone Qemu with support for NVME clone source code from: git clone email@example.com:nvmeqemu/nvmeqemu.git 2. How to compile Qemu with NVME support. a. Clone the above git repository. b. Make sure you are using a 64 bit environment and a 64 bit Linux kernel. c. You need the following libraries: For Ubuntu 10.10 Server 64b host: sudo apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.35-22-server sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev sudo apt-get install libsdl-dev sudo apt-get install libaio-dev For RHEL5 host (If the packages are not found, check your repositories' setup): yum install kernel-devel yum install zlib-devel yum install SDL yum install libaio-devel ./configure --enable-io-thread --enable-linux-aio --target-list=x86_64-softmmu --enable-sdl NOTE: With RHEL5 the configure might fail, complaining about AIO even after installing it. Ignore it and re-run configure with the AIO switch removed from the command make d. The resulting executable is qemu/x86_64-softmnu/qemu-system-x86_64/qemu-system-x86_64. You can add it to $PATH for easy access. 3. Make a virtual HD for QEMU 1. On RHEL5: yum install qemu-img 2. Execute qemu-img create -f raw <your_virtual_HD_filename.img> <size>M 4. Locate and download a Linux based 64b OS to virtualize 1. Download the iso file and save as <your_iso_image_filename.iso> 5. Install KVM 1. On RHEL5: yum install kvm kmod-kvm 6. Install the guest OS to the virtual HD 1. Execute ./qemu-system-x86_64 -m 1024 -cdrom <path_to_your_iso_image>/<your_iso_image_filename.iso> -hda <path_to_virtual_HD>/<your_virtual_HD_filename.img> -device nvme -boot d A terminal window should launch into view booting from the supplied ISO file. Follow through the usual actions to install the OS onto the virtual HD. Feel free to partition/format/re-initialize virtual HD as necessary. At the end of a successful installation reboot the virtual machine. 7. Boot the virtual machine from the virtual HD 1. Execute with kvm support (recommended) sudo ./qemu-system-x86_64 -m 1024 -hda <path_to_virtual_HD>/<your_virtual_HD_filename.img> -device nvme --enable-kvm -smp 2 2. Execute without kvm support sudo ./qemu-system-x86_64 -m 1024 -hda <path_to_virtual_HD>/<your_virtual_HD_filename.img> -device nvme -smp 2 8. Performance notes 1. Consider adding the following switches when invoking configure: --enable-io-thread --enable-linux-aio 2. Consider adding the following switches when invoking qemu: --enable-kvm -smp 2 9. Usage Notes 1. Config Files NVME module of Qemu uses two device config files called "NVME_device_PCI_config" and "NVME_device_NVME_config" located inside the /qemu/hw directory They basically enable the user to set up the intial values in both the PCI and NVME config space These file names are unique and thus there should not be multiple files with the above names inside the directory from where the qemu is run by executing Step 6 Program should be executed from an higher level directory so that both the config files are available inside the directory itself else both spaces will be initialized to defaulted values 2. Additional command line options: You can configure the number of namespaces and their sizes from the command line. The options are: namespaces=<number_of_namespaces> and size=<size_in_MB>. These options go after the "-device namespace". Example sudo ./qemu-system-x86_64 -m 1024 -hda <path_to_virtual_HD>/<your_virtual_HD_filename.img> -device,namespace=1,size=1024 nvme -smp 2 The program limits the number of namespaces to 16 per device and 8GB in size. There will be 1 namespace of 512 MB by default if no opt Full list of -device nvme options: namespaces=<number_of_namespaces> : the maximum number of namespaces the device can have. size=<size_in_MB> : size each automatically created namespace will be.
