Description Roy Golan 2013-12-02 06:55:54 UTC
oVirt VDSM should support dynamically add/remove virtual CPUs to/from a guest that has this capability

WIKI: www.ovirt.org/Hot_plug_cpu

libvirt's api is setVcpus which is used for both add/remove. 
The guest is configured from the start with some max number of CPUs, and the initial number, the one which was used up till now set as "current". e.g

n: number of CPUs set to start the VM with
m: maximum number of CPUs a guest can have


<vcpu current="n" placement="static">m</vcpu>

new api verb:

setNumberOfCpus <vmId> <numberOfCpus>

A seperate RFE will be open for ovirt-engine
