QMP: Full introspection support
Last modified: 2017-10-06 12:47:52 EDT
In order to have full forward compatibility support, QMP needs to be capable of
This means that we need commands to dump the following protocol information:
o Accepted commands, arguments, responses and errors
o Asynchronous messages and their data
o Protocol capabilities
The work has now landed upstream (commit 39a1815 "qapi: New QMP
command query-qmp-schema for QMP introspection" and commit 1a9a507
"qapi-introspect: Hide type names") and will be in 2.5.
This bug is for tracking a possible backport to qemu-kvm.
No doc text needed, because direct use of QMP isn't supported.
A backport will be non-trivial. It should only be undertaken if there's actual demand. As long as there isn't, we'll keep punting this bug.
