Re: replace the acrn device model with libvirt

Geoffroy Van Cutsem

Hi Jianjie,


This is something we have been thinking about, i.e. using libvirt as the primary mechanism to handle the ACRN post-launched VM lifecycles. We will have to make sure we can implement all options via this libvirt interface but at some point it should be possible to replace the launch scripts.


Note that it wouldn’t replace acrn-dm per se, the Device Model will still exist but it will be called directly by libvirt.


I don’t believe we have a timeline for that though. Is this something you’d be interested to contribute to?

Subject: [acrn-users] replace the acrn device model with libvirt


Hi acrn community,


As the new release version of 2.6, I find an interesting tutorial about Configure ACRN Using OpenStack and Libvirt

Therefore, I would like to ask, if it is possible to replace the launch file, which contains the ARCN device model, with the standard libvirt approach?


Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you.
