Subject: Re: LVM

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

If you can boot a Xen VM off a raw disk partition, then most likely you can boot it from an LV as well. They're both implemented as block devices.

LVM is great for that sort of thing. I recently finished building a SAN appliance out of a Linux machine with fibre channel target mode drivers, and used LVM to manage the disk slices being exported to the initiator machines.
Performance was *really* good. Now we're thinking about using it in a virtual infrastructure to keep the storage separate from the VM hosts. VMware Server was being considered, but perhaps Xen should be evaluated as well. I take it you need hardware VT if you want to run 'doze as a guest OS?

VMWare Server is obsolete already. Xen or VMware's hypervisor product would be the way to go for virtual infrastructure.

Either of those choices would be more optimal, but if you have a host system without hardware virtualization, your choices are more limited. Xen requires hardware VT in order to run unmodified guests, and VMware's hypervisor requires an expensive and Windows-based management product in order to manage it.

VMware Server runs unmodified guests on an ordinary host operating system.
Low-end, but it gets the job done.

Oh, I assumed you were virtualizing Linux-on-Linux for purposes of consolidation and management flexibility. If you're just running Linux on Xen, there's no reason to want to run an unmodified guest; paravirt is faster.

We are indeed virtualizing for consolidation and management flexibility, but unfortunately a portion of the target machines are running Windows.

That's for sure. Windows: unsafe at any speed.

Well ... yes, actually, it is. Very much so.

It's a pity that I haven't found a church that preaches the Gospel of Linux.

I just came across the cutest bug.
using bash, try to autocomplete postfix.
as in /etc/init.d/post<tab><tab>
you get a get_cword: command not found error.
Apparently there's a patch for it, also happens for umount I guess.
But how weird is that.

Sorry, I don't recognize the authority of popes (or Saint iGNUcius either, for that matter).

Not quite yet ... Sun works very hard to be a company that sucks even though they have great products. If we get to the point where Red Hat surpasses IBM or Microsoft, then we'll talk.
