  • Thread-topic: network idea

In order to make xend a bit more flexible about what it does with
networking, would it be possible to have it just call out scripts like
pppd (on debian at least) does.

The idea would be /etc/xend/netup.d and /etc/xend/netdown.d directories
in which scripts are called with 'runparts' when a network interface on
a domain starts or stops (or similar hooks). To be useful the scripts
would need at least the following args passed in:
vmid - id of vm
index - network interface no
netif - eg vif1.3
name - name of vm

I know very little about python, but a fair bit about linux systems
programming in general and so would be happy to tackle this myself
unless it's already in progress or is a stupid idea...
