VDSM: Virtual Desktop Server Manager ==================================== The VDSM service exposes an XML-RPC API for managing virtualization hosts running the KVM hypervisor technology. VDSM manages and monitors the host's storage, memory and networks as well as virtual machine creation, other host administration tasks, statistics gathering, and log collection. VDSM service originated as a service to be used by a RHEV Manager to control RHEV Hypervisors and Red Hat Enterprise Linux hosts. It is now independent of RHEV, usable by any management application and is intended to be portable to any Linux host providing the KVM virtualization technology. Installation ============ The VDSM service can be used by following the standard autotools installation process, documented in the INSTALL file. As a quick start you can do ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \ --localstatedir=/var --libdir=/usr/lib make sudo make install The 'vdsm.spec' file demonstrates how to distribute VDSM as an RPM package. Getting Help ============ There are two mailing lists for discussions: - For technical discussions about the project and its code base. https://fedorahosted.org/mailman/listinfo/vdsm-devel - For questions by users, who do not want to be swamped by technicalities. https://fedorahosted.org/mailman/listinfo/vdsm-users The developers also hang out on IRC at #vdsm hosted on freenode.net The latest upstream code can be obtained from GIT: http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/?p=vdsm.git Licensing ========= VDSM is provided under the terms of the GNU General Public License, version 2 or later.
