  • Thread-topic: new repo for squeezed


As you know, "squeezed" is the XCP daemon which shares memory between VMs via 
ballooning. I've created a new repo for squeezed, based on xen-api but with the 
broken commits fixed and history preserved. Check it out:


I've added a "squeezed" package to opam, so if you have already followed the 
wiki instructions to build xenopsd, then you need only do:

    $ opam update
    $ opam install squeezed

Internally this just does

    $ git clone git://github.com/xen-org/squeezed
    $ cd squeezed
    $ obuild configure
    $ obuild build

It's not fully ready for prime-time yet: in the course of separating it from

Let me know what you think!

  2. same again for xcp-networkd
  3. same again for xcp-rrdd
