Re: [Xen-users] What is the difference of "xm save" and "xm snapshot-create"?


Not sure what version of Xen you are using, but the xen man pages has a man page for the xm command:

I only found information about the save command in this file:

Apparently it's like a manual hibernate feature, sounds like it places RAM into a file you can reload from later.

I saw no mention of the snapshot-create command, but that sounds like it would be relative to the LVM (which also has snapshot commands).

   It may be that "xm save" or "xm snapshot-create" also perform a
disk snapshot? because if I create a file after "xm save" or "xm
snapshot-create", I lose to restore the snapshot.
   From what I understand from the documentation are only "snapshots"
of the state of memory and disk.
   File loss will be due inode cache issues?

   Thanks for getting here. I'm sure it was way too suffering ... (The
day will come that fails to use translate.google)
