The Hosts are servers with a hypervisor installed (KVM) which execute the running Virtual Machines. These Hosts are managed by the KVM Driver, which will perform the actions needed to manage the VM and its life-cycle. This chapter analyses the KVM driver in detail, and will give you, amongst other things, the tools to configure and add KVM hosts into the OpenNebula Cloud.
How Should I Read This Chapter¶
This chapter will focus on the configuration options for the Hosts.
- Read the KVM driver section in order to understand the procedure of configuring and managing kvm Hosts.
- In the Monitoring section, you can find information about how OpenNebula is monitoring its Hosts and Virtual Machines, and changes you can make in the configuration of that subsystem.
- You can read this section if you are interested in performing PCI Passthrough.
After reading this chapter, you should read the Open Cloud Storage chapter.
