This case verifies that the host can successfully suspend and resume while KVM guest(s) are operational.
How to test
First, verify that your host machine is able to suspend/resume by executing:
echo mem > /sys/power/state
Or your preferred method (closing the lid of your laptop, for instance).
If this works:
- start a KVM guest
- login in to it
- start your preferred stress application (eg:
- attempt to suspend/resume the host while the stress application runs
- The running KVM guest should not interfere with the suspend/resume operation.
- In case of apparent problems, please once again confirm that your machine is able to suspend/resume without a KVM guest.
