[edit] XAPI

[edit] Summary

The Xen API toolstack

[edit] Owner

[edit] Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 17
  • Last updated: 2012-01-23
  • Percentage of completion: 40%

[edit] Detailed Description

XAPI is the Xen API toolstack that is used to interact with the Xen hypervisor for enterprise-grade, easily scalable virtualization

[edit] Benefit to Fedora

This project provides a number of benefits. First of all, it will provide Xen users with the option of using the same API and toolstack that XCP and XenServer provide. It will give early adopters the chance to try out new changes to the XenAPI before they get released in new XCP and XenServer versions. And because we will have ported all of our toolstack to build on Fedora, it’s now much, much easier to build our tools outside of an SDK VM.

[edit] Scope

This will involve rebuilding the xen packages to include the ocaml bindings. The balance of the work is largely packaging of a number of tools.

[edit] How To Test

  1. yum install xapi
  2. interact with the Xen API to control the hypervisor


[edit] Dependencies

Aside from the Xen ocaml bindings, these would be leaf packages.

[edit] Contingency Plan

We'd try and get into Fedora 18

[edit] Documentation

Upstream documentation is available at xen.org

[edit] Release Notes

The Xen API toolstack is now available for installation on Fedora for interaction with the Xen hypervisor.
