Re: [Xen-users] Xen Orchestra : web app for managing Xen with one or mo

Hi Olivier!

Thanx for creating this very handy interface! One small thing though:

When pushing the "stop" button on the interface behind a DomU it sends a "destroy" command, which is a tad bit resolute. Wouldn't it be wiser to send a "shutdown" command instead of radically killing it, and add a button that functions as a killswitch?

Kind regards,

Sadly for API Cloning, I found this in

   def VM_clone(self, session, vm_ref):
        return xen_api_error(XEND_ERROR_UNSUPPORTED)

So, It seems impossible to use cloning via API. But I'll work on a
interface which allows creation of templates. I just need time to do
that, but so far, I'm on full time in this project !

Hello Steve,

I'll trying (just in the next hours) to use "VM.clone" method existing
in API. If it works well, so it will be easy to integrate this

If it's not as expected, I'll introduce vm creation interface from the
GUI, by calling xen tools (but it need a "n tier" infrastructure, like
I discuss in this article : http://xen-orchestra.com/?p=53 )
But this step will be more complicated (slowest to implement).

Thank you for your interest :)

This project is just the kind of thing I'm looking for! Being web UI based
is a massive bonus for my organisation, as it's non-operating system
specific. I'll be sure to try this out asap.

It would be really handy for me if I can create machines from a clone or
template though, having that functionality would make the app ready for use
in my eyes!

Mainly with Xen, questions are :
 “Where are my DomU’s at this time ? Are they running ?”.

That’s why I started this project : although my DomU’s are on
different Dom0, I want to see them all quickly, in one page.

And I would like to stop/pause/restart them in one click. Live
migration is really a great feature for Xen : so, it could be easily
accesible (two clicks ;) )

Furthermore, check informations about a DomU (like CPU parameters
etc.) is crucial. But this is not a final objective.

First, you can follow the main site of the project :

And report bug or features request on the forge (Git repo on Indefero
forge) :

Future of Xen Orchestra, example of next features :

* allow set of all DomU parameters (CPU, RAM etc.). Set all this stuff in
live ;
* restrict access with “DomU per users” : user “foobar” can access and
modifiy it’s own domU, or more. Can be really usefull in a classroom
for testing prupose, or for developer ;
* possibility of cloning domU and create them (with creating roles, a
kind of interface of xen-create-image).

Please be nice, this project is really really young, the code need to
be cleaned and reorganized. But it works, so if you want do some
tests, go !

Here is some screenshots of the first release :

Now, you have CPU counters, but I made screenshots later, you can see
them on the main blog/site.

And yes, it's open source ;) (maybe, in a near future, it will be
packaged and include in Debian)
