[edit] VM Snapshot UI with virt-manager

[edit] Summary

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

[edit] Owner

[edit] Current status

[edit] 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. This includes adding functionality to libvirt to support deleting and rebasing to external snapshots.

[edit] 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.
