Description Cole Robinson 2010-05-12 13:51:01 EDT
virt-manager upstream now supports libvirt managed save APIs:

http://hg.fedorahosted.org/hg/virt-manager/rev/3bf35eddc1a3
http://hg.fedorahosted.org/hg/virt-manager/rev/d2c1b327de0c
http://hg.fedorahosted.org/hg/virt-manager/rev/affa97c8ae9a

Should be a trivial backport, and AIUI this is desired functionality for RHEL6 GA (but I'll let hewbrocca argue that).
Comment 1 Cole Robinson 2010-05-12 13:54:09 EDT
For testing: There is now an extra option under the various VM shutdown menus: 'Save'. This is basically an 'offline pause': the VM is stopped, but it's current memory state is saved by libvirt. When a save successfully completes, all the UI previously labeld 'Run' will now be called 'Restore'. Running 'Restore' should start the VM right where you last saved.

Comment 4 Hugh Brock 2010-05-13 15:26:57 EDT
Managed save is a major usability enhancement that is brand-new for RHEL 6. Current virt-manager doesn't support it at all so there is little risk of regression in adding the new feature.
Comment 6 dyuan 2010-07-06 22:04:07 EDT
Verified PASSED with virt-manager-0.8.4-6.el6.
