Description Saveliev Peter 2013-04-05 09:04:51 EDT
Description of problem:

Libvirt documentation has Mbps (megabits) instead of MBps (megabytes), at least for migration routine virDomainMigrateToURI2 [1]. Though the difference is not too big, it is still approx. 8 times.

Connected issue is #925981

    docs: use MiB/s instead of Mbps for migration speed
Comment 2 Jiri Denemark 2013-06-11 06:05:49 EDT
We decided not to rebase libvirt in RHEL 6.5 to avoid stability issues
we faced in 6.4. This bug has already been trivially fixed upstream but
it is not considered important enough to be backported to RHEL 6.5.

Thus I'm pushing this bug to RHEL 6.6 (and setting Upstream keyword to
indicate we have patches upstream) for now. If you don't agree with
this resolution, please, give us reasons which you think are strong
enough for us to reevaluate the decision not to backport patches for
this bug.
