[Xen-users] device naming - blkbak.<device> ????


    I have three hosts dom0 all running, I think, same identical version of ubuntu 16.04 and hosting a number of domUs.

    I notice that on two of the boxes, there are processes with names like 'blkback.2.xvda2' and such. I use raw filesystem images and presume these represent the loopback filesystem for each domu. On a third host, seemingly identically configured with identical software and so forth, I instead see processes with names like '4.xvda1-0'.

    Can anyone tell me what the naming significance is and what I could possibly have different between these hosts that would make this that way?

Thank you.
