Project Kemari in XenBits

Thanks to Ian Jackson, the Kemari repository is now open at xenbits. Send all questions to Yoshiaki Tamura tamura.yoshiaki@lab.ntt.co.jp.

You can clone the tree from the following address.

http://xenbits.xensource.com/ext/kemari/kemari-v1-unstable.hg

You can build the tree just like you usually build the unstable tree.  The tree works both on i386 and x86_64.  It follows the xen-unstable tree, and we’ll keep updating when there are chaneges to the mainline.  For more information how to use Kemari, please read the instruction at our website.

For those who don’t want to prepare a SAN, Kemari can be used with DRBD which replicates a block device through network.  With DRBD, now you can play Kemari without a shared disk.  I use the following configuration for the drbd device for Kemari, and this should also work for live migration.

global {

}

common {

protocol C;

}

resource r0 {

syncer {

rate 1G;

}

net {

allow-two-primaries;

after-sb-0pri discard-zero-changes;

after-sb-1pri discard-secondary;

}

startup {

become-primary-on both;

}

on host0 {

device    /dev/drbd0;

disk      /dev/sdb1;

address   192.168.0.48:7789;

meta-disk internal;

}

on host1 {

device    /dev/drbd0;

disk      /dev/sdb1;

address   192.168.0.52:7789;

meta-disk internal;

}

}
