Live Migration: Even faster, Now With a Dedicated Thread! - Orit Wasserman, Red Hat

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this session we cover two aspects of live migration:

  • We discuss the work of moving the execution of outgoing live migration to a separate dedicated thread in QEMU.
  • Using a separate thread for live migration reduces contention with the IO thread and vcpus which results in higher throughput and more reliable downtime.

We analyze Live Migration performance state:

  • Performance on very large guests and the issues we encounter with such a guest. This discussion will include convergence and actual downtime (compared to user configured downtime). 
  • Live migration effects on the running guest (downtime and performance impact on the guest workload)
  • Resource consumption (network bandwidth and CPU usage)
