Description Lior Vernia 2013-12-15 07:39:28 UTC
Currently, it is only possible to shape traffic on VM networks as they make their way into or out of a VM, yet it would be useful to also configure QoS on the physical interfaces of a host. For example, this would allow limiting the bandwidth of a migration network sharing a physical interface with the management network, so that the engine won't lost connectivity to hosts while migration takes place.

Comment 2 Lior Vernia 2014-01-26 08:10:51 UTC
Moving to ON_QA due to Bug 1043230 (oVirt clone) being already ON_QA.

Comment 3 Dan Kenigsberg 2014-02-13 11:27:52 UTC
As reported in bug 1055484 and bug 1057321, only recently we have learned that libvirt does not really support QoS for non-VM networks.

We may be able to implement network QoS via libvirt network hooks; there is also a possibility that with kernel improvements, libvirt could implement QoS as they with the semantics they prefer.

Even if we attempt the simpler path of using libvirt hooks, it is too optimistic to expect to have it by rhev-3.4.
