Description

The libvirt storage pools let you set up a location/source and then browse images. This would use librbd to browse/manipulate images.

It could either handle the librbd source config for qemu VMs, or set up a kernel rbd mapping.

Not sure how to map onto the fields you get from libvirt (in the virt-manager gui, at least):
- target path -> ?
- format (drop down) -> kernel rbd or librbd (qemu-only)
- host name -> ceph config string, e.g. "-c /etc/ceph/ceph.conf -n client.foo", or "-m monhost -k /path/to/keyring -n client.foo"
- source path -> pool name

Made some more progress on this, code seems to be stable.

Working:
  • Single and multiple monitors
  • Authentication
  • Creating and removing volumes
  • Refreshing pools
Missing:
  • Valid dumpxml format of a volume
  • wiping, downloading, cloning and uploading volumes, this is a limitation of libvirt.

I just submitted my patch to the libvirt mailinglist. This is a revised version of the patch and should hopefully make it through: https://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2012-May/msg00717.html

The commit itself: https://github.com/wido/libvirt/commit/4fa0ae40e40a061b35f33125ec9aa881d22a1a63

Setting this one to 90% completed since we are almost there.
