- libvirt-proxy dropping root priviledge after initialization.
- check impact of HVM device rename
- Finish integration of vCPU and affinity APIs
- check how to better handle renaming of domains (xm rename and cache)
- Create() API, how do we best keep flexibility and allow various
specific environment and space for evolution (VMX)
- track change of xend API & XML-RPC
- API for the Node: selecting scheduling policy
- better resources allocation APIs (%CPU, set memory)
- DTD/RNG/XSD schemas for the XML Domain descriptions
- in python bindings raise an exception if a lookup or connection fails
to return a non-None object
- add error handling hooks at the python level
- object unicity for domains at the Python level
- UUID lookup in hash.c
Other environment:
- support for QEmu
- support for UML
+ in both case raises the problem of listing the domains
+ UML control layer should be easy at least for one user but incomplete
+ QEmu control is not easy to plug, c.f. discussion on-list
virsh TODO:
- decide where will be default directory for domains configurations (/etc/xen/domains/* ?)
- new cmd: create new domain by config file (like "xm create")
create [--conf /path/file.conf | name]
- new cmd: print info about domain configuration:
cinfo [--conf /path/file.conf | name]
- new cmd: print list of all domains configurations:
clist [--dir /path]
- new cmd: print info about saved domain image:
sinfo /path/domain.img
Probable TODOs:
- event on big domain state change (create, crashed, paused, shutdown, destroy)
- bindings for more languages
Would-be-nice TODO:
- man page for virsh and the libraries entry points
- more documentation and examples on using the toolkit
- examples for the error handling code
- now that libxml2 is linked in, drop hash.[ch] and get back to libxml2 ones ?
same for the buffers
- make dist and make rpm targets
- set a no public by default policy for libvir symbols
- fix the python bindings
- renamed to libvirt
- the CreateLinux() API is a first step toward a final Create()
- documentation and examples on using the toolkit
- UUID based lookup and naming
- Error API similar to libxml2 structured API
- extract error messages from the Xend rpc
- API for the Node: extracting informations
- docs for the principle in the error handling code
- thread protection, reentrancy, refcounting, etc ...
- Add uuid to XML format
