Description gustavo panizzo <gfa> 2014-07-31 05:10:04 UTC
Description of problem:

i would like if libvirt could bind vnet devices on different namespaces

i would like to segment different bridges (linux bridges) on namespaces. so i can, for example, put all vm connected to certain vlan, and the bridge where them connect, on a specific namespace.
i would ideally create as many namespaces as vlans.

that should be a configuration option, off by default. 

    <interface type='bridge'>
      <mac address='52:54:00:10:e9:e3'/>
      <source bridge='br0'/>
      <target dev='vnet0'/>
      <namespace='foo'/>
    </interface>


i would set this bug as wishlist item.

thanks

in this example, libvirt should look for bridge br0 on namespace named foo, admin should take care of create bridge and namespace. i any of them does not exist virsh start should fail

s/i any/if any/

Comment 3 Cole Robinson 2016-04-10 19:18:23 UTC
I think this would be solved/integrated as part of a larger effort to containerize VMs, which is a broader topic for which an RFE already exists
