VM Snapshot UI with virt-manager

Summary

Add UI to virt-manager for easily managing VM snapshots.

Owner

Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 20
  • Last updated: 2013-06-11
  • Tracker bug: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>

Detailed Description

qemu and libvirt have all the major pieces in place for performing safe VM snapshots/checkpoints, however there isn't any simple discoverable UI. This feature will track adding that UI to virt-manager, and any other virt stack bits that need to be fixed/improved.

Benefit to Fedora

  • Making snapshots easier to use means more QA folks and packagers will use them, makes their lives easier.
  • End users have been asking it for a while, gives them incentive to update or make the jump to Fedora.

Scope

  • Proposal owners:
  1. Verify that all the libvirt APIs are fully implemented, some pieces were missing at last check.
  2. Implement virt-manager UI
