Re: [Xen-users] [Xen-devel] How to activate all VPCUS for a domU?


Apologies for earlier spamming the xen-devel list but this message might be relevant as I think there is a bug in xm/create.py where 'vcpu_avail' option doesn't get properly set.

I manage to solve the issue of activating all of the vcpus by apply a modified version of the patch earlier discussed:


The following patch fixed the issue for me and after this bitmask value was activating required vpcu's read from the xen configuration file. Prior to that, vpcu_avail was always set to '1' (also verified from 'xenstore-ls -f' output).
--- create.py   
+++ create.py.af  

         if maxvcpus and vcpus:
             config.append(['vcpus', vcpus])
- config.append(['vcpu_avail', (1 << vcpus) -1)])
+ config.append(['vcpu_avail', getattr(vals, 'vcpu_avail']) def add_conf(n): if hasattr(vals, n):

I have set maxvcpus and vcpus options in my domU configuration file, and I can see that X number of vcpu are set for the domU.

I tried to activate all the vpcus by using vpcu_avail option (using decimal to represent vpcu bitmask e.g. 24=11000) but it doesn't seem to work, and only the first vpcu is activated (i.e. has -b- state) while all other vpcu's set for the domU are in the paused state.

Can any one share more insights on how to activate all the vpcu's for the guest domain ?

This definitely belongs to the Xen-Users list, not on Xen-Devel. Please don't post to both lists, it just confuses people.
