Description Cole Robinson 2010-05-12 17:51:01 UTC
virt-manager upstream now supports libvirt managed save APIs:


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 17:54:09 UTC
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.

Managed save backport

Comment 4 Hugh Brock 2010-05-13 19:26:57 UTC
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.
