[Qemu-devel] [PATCH COLO v4 00/15] Block replication for continuous chec

From: Wen Congyang
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH COLO v4 00/15] Block replication for continuous checkpoints
Date: Fri, 8 May 2015 17:15:52 +0800

Block replication is a very important feature which is used for
continuous checkpoints(for example: COLO).

Please refer to docs/block-replication.txt

You can get the patch here:

You can get the patch with the other COLO patches here:

1. Test failover when the guest does too many I/O operations. If it
   takes too much time, we need to optimize it.
2. Continuous block replication. It will be started after basic functions
   are accepted.

Changs Log:
1. Introduce a new driver replication to avoid touch nbd and qcow2.
1: use error_setg() instead of error_set()
2. Add a new block job API
3. Active disk, hidden disk and nbd target uses the same AioContext
4. Add a testcase to test new hbitmap API
1. Redesign the secondary qemu(use image-fleecing)
2. Use Error objects to return error message
3. Address the comments from Max Reitz and Eric Blake

Wen Congyang (15):
  docs: block replication's description
  allow writing to the backing file
  Allow creating backup jobs when opening BDS
  block: Parse "backing_reference" option to reference existing BDS
  Backup: clear all bitmap when doing block checkpoint
  Don't allow a disk use backing reference target
  Add new block driver interface to connect/disconnect the remote target
  NBD client: implement block driver interfaces to connect/disconnect
    NBD server
  Introduce a new -drive option to control whether to connect to remote
  NBD client: connect to nbd server later
  Add new block driver interfaces to control block replication
  skip nbd_target when starting block replication
  quorum: implement block driver interfaces for block replication
  quorum: allow ignoring child errors
  Implement new driver for block replication
