Revision as of 20:42, 30 April 2009

See Test_Day:2009-05-07_Virtualization.

This test area is concerned with Xen DomU functionality, which is based on the pv_ops work in upstream Linux. We need to make sure that Xen DomU is roughly as functional as the earlier, non-upstream versions of Xen DomU (i.e. RHEL-5, Fedora 8, etc.).

Prerequisites

You need a distribution with Xen Dom0 support. This can either be Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, CentOS 5, Suse, Fedora 8, etc. We also highly recommend that your distribution is fully updated to the latest released packages.

If you are running a RHEL-5 Dom0, there are some 5.4 preview packages available here. These packages should allow you to do 32pv-on-64 dom0 testing, if you are so inclined. Note that these packages are not supported by Red Hat in any way, they are just for testing.

Tests

Follow each of these test cases:

  1. Guest install
  2. Memory ballooning
  3. Save/restore
  4. Live migration
  5. Guest pause/unpause
  6. CPU hotplug
  7. Network devices
  8. Block attach/detach
  9. Paravirt framebuffer
  10. Guest crash dump
  11. Execshield
  12. GDB
  13. Statically linked binaries
  14. Kernel command line parameters
  15. Host machine lacking NX support

If possible each of the tests should be repeated for:

  1. 32-bit DomU on a 32-bit Dom0
  2. 32-bit DomU on a 64-bit Dom0
  3. 64-bit DomU on a 64-bit Dom0

Results

If you have problems with any of the tests, file a bug report in bugzilla.

Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the table below.
