Description Daniel Berrangé 2010-09-21 11:19:04 UTC
Description of problem:
To detect the creation & deletion, etc of storage pools, virtual networks, interfaces and node devices, it is necessary to poll on APIs to list them. This is terribly inefficient and contains race conditions. The domain lifecycle event infrastructure should be replicated for all other objects which have a lifecycle process.

Network events are upstream nowadays, should be easy to extend to storage APIs at least.

FYI this was proposed as a GSOC 2016 project

Comment 5 Cole Robinson 2019-02-06 23:46:00 UTC
Lifecycle events for storage and nodedev objects have been upstream since summer 2016. I doubt interfaces will ever happen, their isn't much modern usage of those APIs.
