  • Thread-topic: cluster management

Is anyone currently working on a xen cluster manager? The sort of
functionality I'd be looking for is:

. multiple master - dom0 on all physical machines are equal cluster
manager masters
. config replication - I guess rsync can do this though.
. vif mac address allocation - can be done manually by taking care in
the config files though. I just had an incident with a duplicated mac
address. Nasty.
. multiple domain instantiation protection. Same domain should never be
started on multiple physical machines at once. This would be the main
. automatic load balancing of domains. A new domain is created on any
available physical machine. Domains automatically migrated to balance
. automatic restart of required domains if a machine disappears from the
cluster (eg crashes or blows up)
. clean shutdown of a node in the cluster, migrate off all domains to
other nodes first.
