Comment 2 Pavel Stehlik 2013-06-11 14:39:56 UTC
One possible solution could be progress bar in Status column (currently 'Migration from' text) of migrated VM.

Comment 7 Michal Skrivanek 2014-02-14 13:52:22 UTC
still needs a proper vdsm patch(posted by Francesco),then backend, REST and UI support

Comment 8 Michal Skrivanek 2014-02-25 18:33:01 UTC
Only the vdsm part merged

Comment 10 Tomas Jelinek 2014-07-10 06:47:23 UTC
Hey Jiri,

the issues mentioned in the tests are fixed in http://gerrit.ovirt.org/#/c/29763/ (bz: 1114997). 

I would maybe add one more negative case: while migrating, kill the machine on the source host. It should turn down and the progress bar should be cleared. Please note that this is also fixed in the mentioned patch.

Otherwise they are good. 
Thanx, Tomas

Comment 11 Ilanit Stein 2014-08-07 13:53:38 UTC
Tested on: 
(oVirt Engine Version: 3.5.0-0.0.master.20140804172041.git23b558e.el6)

A VM with OS type win7, not installed with OS, 16000 MB memory, migration took 18 sec, but progress bar didn't show ant progress, even if doing often tab refresh.

Comment 18 Ilanit Stein 2014-08-12 08:44:37 UTC
Retested it with a VM that it's migration took longer (43 sec in engine),
and for that VM progress bar did show a percentage growth.

VM mentioned in bug description & in the attached logs has a too short migration,
and thus the there is no progress seen in the progress bar.

Therefore, moving bug back to ON_QA

Verification for this bug should be by the TCMS cases attached.

Comment 19 Ilanit Stein 2014-09-08 14:24:37 UTC
Verified by running all attached tcms cases on rhevm-3.5, vt2.2

Comment 20 Yaniv Lavi 2015-01-19 15:40:20 UTC
Description of original problem:

VDSM should report migration progress to RHEVM in order to be able to control parameters such as migration time out , or to reach other logical decisions.

For example: If VM fails to migrate after 300 seconds and it succeeds to migrate 80 percent of the data , RHEVM can try again with bigger timeout.

For this kind of decisions VDSM should report migration process to RHEVM ( every x seconds or at migration process end time )

2 clones of the same BZ should be opened to VDSM and libvirt
