Description Daniel Berrange 2017-06-27 06:14:00 EDT
Description of problem:
The manpage for 'virt-install' lists a few options, but doesn't mention anything about NUMA cell/memory configuration.

While it is visible with 'virt-install --cpu=?', it lacks any information about how to actually use it in practice.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
virt-install-1.4.1-2.fc25.noarch
Comment 1 Cole Robinson 2017-06-27 12:19:52 EDT
Example: --cpu cell0.memory=1234,cell0.cpus=0-3,cell1.memory=5678,cell1.cpus=4-7

Will generate:

  <cpu>
    <numa>
      <cell cpus="0-3" memory="1234"/>
      <cell cpus="4-7" memory="5678"/>
    </numa>
  </cpu>

I've added that to the man page upstream now, thanks
