NAME

       xlcpupool.cfg - XL Cpupool Configuration File Syntax

SYNOPSIS

        /etc/xen/xlcpupool

DESCRIPTION

       To create a Cpupool with xl requires the provision of a cpupool config file.  Typically
       these live in `/etc/xen/CPUPOOL.cfg` where CPUPOOL is the name of the cpupool.

SYNTAX

       A cpupool config file consists of a series of "KEY=VALUE" pairs.

       A value "VALUE" is one of:

       "STRING"
           A string, surrounded by either single or double quotes.

       NUMBER
           A number, in either decimal, octal (using a 0 prefix) or hexadecimal (using an "0x"
           prefix).

       [ VALUE, VALUE, ... ]
           A list of "VALUES" of the above types. Lists are homogeneous and are not nested.

       The semantics of each "KEY" defines which form of "VALUE" is required.

OPTIONS

   Mandatory Configuration Items
       The following key is mandatory for any cpupool:

       name="NAME"
           Specifies the name of the cpupool.  Names of cpupools existing on a single host must
           be unique.

   Optional Configuration Items
       The following options apply to guests of any type.

       sched="SCHED"
           Specifies the scheduler which is used for the cpupool. Valid values for "SCHED" are:

           credit
               the credit scheduler

           credit2
               the credit2 scheduler

           rtds
               the RTDS scheduler

           The default scheduler is the one used for "Pool-0" specified as boot parameter of the
           hypervisor.

       nodes="NODES"
           Specifies the cpus of the NUMA-nodes given in "NODES" (an integer or a list of
           integers) to be member of the cpupool. The free cpus in the specified nodes are
           allocated in the new cpupool.

       cpus="CPU-LIST"
           Specifies the cpus that will be member of the cpupool. All the specified cpus must be
           free, or creation will fail. "CPU-LIST" may be specified as follows:

           ["2", "3", "5"]
               means that cpus 2,3,5 will be member of the cpupool.

           "0-3,5,^1"
               means that cpus 0,2,3 and 5 will be member of the cpupool. A "node:" or "nodes:"
               modifier can be used. E.g., "0,node:1,nodes:2-3,^10-13" means that pcpus 0, plus
               all the cpus of NUMA nodes 1,2,3 with the exception of cpus 10,11,12,13 will be
               memeber of the cpupool.

           If neither nodes nor cpus are specified only the first free cpu found will be
           allocated in the new cpupool.
