The documentation is relatively sparse, but reading what is available will help: http://libvirt.org/api.html http://libvirt.org/internals.html so if you want to step though that function you must gdb the libvirt daemon, not the client application. Danielen, this Daniel is not that Daniel: ) I remember that I joined the presentation about libvirt delivered by you in Nanjing University last year.ah yes, there is Dan and Daniel that can be a bit confusing :-)Yes, the document about libvirt is sparse, so I am often confused when I try to understand the internals of the relationship between QEMU, KVM and libvirt...ah, yes the overall stack is a bit complex.Let me go through the link you mentioned to see if I can understand libvirtd comes from and the relationship with libvirt...Basically for some driver the application talk to the libvirt daemon to implement all the entry points of a driver (qemu/lxc for example), it uses the remote driver to connect to the daemon, and the daemon calls the real driver. Sometimes, the driver in the applcation does the work by talking directly to the hypervisor (ESX/Hyper-V). So if you want to debug/gdb the qemu code you must attach to libvirtd daemon not to the application. See slide 5 of the CLK slides ;-) http://veillard.com/Talks/CLKLinux2011.pdf Daniel
slide 5 and 12 is useful for me because it's a overview picture. About daemon, in my system: root@dennis-:/home/dennis/workspace/Software# ps aux | grep libvirtdroot 20308 0.0 0.1 102908 3540 ? Sl 15:25 0:00 /usr/sbin/libvirtd -d
so the libvirtd daemon is there, but I have questions about this daemon: 1. where is the daemon source code, it's in the libvirt tar package? 2. Who is responsible to start this daemon and when?
