Just Launched: You can now import projects and releases from Google Code onto SourceForge
We are excited to release new functionality to enable a 1-click import from Google Code onto the Allura platform on SourceForge. You can import tickets, wikis, source, releases, and more with a few simple steps. Read More
I have been reading about KVM lately. There are parallels with
OpenMosix: migration and emphasis on user-space tools. Since KVM is SMP
safe but runs only on AMD64 with SVM or Intel with VT I am wondering
whether it would be more useful to provide OM-like tools for KVM instead
of re-inventing the wheel. Clearly OM is delightfully light and migrates
processes efficiently but systems that need that can run on 2.4/32bit.
Perhaps OM for 2.6/64bit should be based on KVM with a somewhat
I am thinking such a split/fork/versioning could get the end-result
quicker. KVM is already in the kernel, well supported. Let them do the
kernel-surgery and OM concentrate on the user-space tools.
If we have a project that needs to migrate processes we can run 32bit on
AMD64 with 2.4. If we need to migrate whole systems we can run 64bit on
AMD64 with 2.6/KVM. OM 32bit can even run as a guest on KVM. The
possibilities are great.
