Name

       ganeti-kvmd - Ganeti KVM daemon

Synopsis

       ganeti-kvmd

DESCRIPTION

       The  KVM  daemon  is  responsible  for  determining whether a given KVM
       instance was shutdown by an administrator or a user.

       The KVM daemon monitors, using inotify, KVM instances through their QMP
       sockets,  which  are  provided  by KVM.  Using the QMP sockets, the KVM
       daemon listens for particular  shutdown,  powerdown,  and  stop  events
       which  will  determine  if a given instance was shutdown by the user or
       Ganeti, and this result is communicated to Ganeti via a special file in
       the filesystem.

FILES

       The KVM daemon monitors Qmp sockets of KVM instances, which are created
       in     the     KVM      control      directory,      located      under
       /var/run/ganeti/kvm-hypervisor/ctrl/.   The  KVM  daemon  also  creates
       shutdown files in this directory.  Finally, the KVM daemon's  log  file
       is  located  under /var/log/ganeti/ganeti-kvmd.log.  Removal of the KVM
       control directory, the shutdown files, or the log file, will lead to no
       errors on the KVM daemon.

       Report  bugs  to  project website (http://code.google.com/p/ganeti/) or
       contact   the   developers    using    the    Ganeti    mailing    list
