Description Ben Cotton 2021-07-07 15:46:10 UTC
This is a tracking bug for Change: Libvirt Modular Daemons
For more details, see: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/LibvirtModularDaemons

Historically all libvirt functionality was provided in the monolithic libvirtd daemon. Upstream has developed a new modular architecture for libvirt where each driver is run in its own daemon. Primarily this provides better robustness as a flaw in a secondary daemon will not affect the QEMU daemon and vica-versa. It should also have slightly lower host startup overhead, because only the installed hypervisor daemon(s) will need to be fully started on boot, the other daemons can be socket activated on demand.

If you encounter a bug related to this Change, please do not comment here. Instead create a new bug and set it to block this bug.

Today is the "Code complete (testable)" deadline in the Fedora Linux 35 release schedule:
https://fedorapeople.org/groups/schedule/f-35/f-35-key-tasks.html

If this Change is complete enough to be tested, please indicate this by setting this bug to the MODIFIED status. (If it is 100% complete, you can set it to ON_QA).

If you wish to defer this Change to Fedora Linux 36, please needinfo bcotton@redhat.com.
