Re: [Xen-users] xl migrate with lz4c, zlib or quicklz compression method

i want to use Run length encoding for live migration. The importance of it is to avoid repeatedly transmitting same pages so we can
use only diffrences.

this is already developed in xen 4.2 with xc_compression.c BUT i want to write code in migrate.py (for xend/xm) for run lenght.
how can this possible? how to understand memory pages structure in xm? may i need to write RPC procedure (in C) for that?

It's not, this isn't currently a feature of xl migrate.

I'm afraid this is going to involve writing a patch for xl to add this
feature, since there is no such option currently.

You might be able to bodge something using the -s option to provide your
own transprt script wraps the transfer in compression.
