The first prototype of Yabusame


This is the first prototype of postcopy live migration for Qemu/KVM. This code is NOT intended to be merged into Qemu/KVM. This is a proof-of-concept prototype. We do not improve this prototype anymore.

We are now developing a production-level code of postcopy migration, which is intended to be merged to the mainline. Please check the latest development in the Qemu/KVM mailing lists and the project home page.
