Thread-topic: xen - rdma live migration support
Hi Ola,

There was some code done by IBM a few years ago in conjunction with a 
University that worked and showed the benefits but AFAIK it was never 
integrated into Xen. The research paper is around on the web.

A few of us requested RDMA migration support for version 4.0 and it is at the 
top of the request list, I suspect it is probably a case of enough people 
asking and Citrix approving.

I´m a DE at Sun located at the European Design Center in Oslo, Norway,
working on high-performance RDMA fabrics. What is the status of RDMA  
Migration support in Xen?

 From http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/XenRoadMap it appears
that it is part of Xen4.0 release? When is that scheduled to be  
and, is there a working prototype available?
