NAME ^

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot - Represent & manage a libvirt guest domain

DESCRIPTION ^

The Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot module represents a guest domain managed by the virtual machine monitor.

METHODS ^

my $str = $domss->get_name()

Return the name of the snapshot

my $xml = $domss->get_xml_description($flags)

Returns an XML document containing a complete description of the domain's configuration.

$domss->delete($flags)

Deletes this snapshot object & its data. The optional $flags parameter controls what should be deleted via the Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::DELETE_* constants.

$domss->revert_to($flags)

Revert the domain to the state associated with this snapshot. The optional $flags control the state of the vm after the revert via the Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::REVERT_* constants.

$parentss = $domss->get_parent();

Return the parent of the snapshot, if any

$res = $domss->is_current()

Returns a true value if this is the current snapshot. False otherwise.

$res = $domss->has_metadata()

Returns a true value if this snapshot has metadata associated with it.

$count = $domss->num_of_child_snapshots()

Return the number of saved snapshots which are children of this snapshot

@names = $domss->list_child_snapshot_names()

List the names of all saved snapshots which are children of this snapshot . The names can be used with the lookup_snapshot_by_name

@snapshots = $domss->list_child_snapshots()

Return a list of all snapshots that are children of this snapshot. The elements in the returned list are instances of the Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot class. This method requires O(n) RPC calls, so the list_all_children method is recommended as a more efficient alternative.

my @snapshots = $domss->list_all_children($flags)

Return a list of all domain snapshots that are children of this snapshot. The elements in the returned list are instances of the Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot class. The $flags parameter can be used to filter the list of return domain snapshots.

CONSTANTS ^

SNAPSHOT CREATION

The following constants are useful when creating snapshots

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::CREATE_CURRENT

Set the defined snapshot to be the current snapshot

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::CREATE_DISK_ONLY

Only snapshot the disk, not the memory state

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::CREATE_HALT

Stop the guest after creating the snapshot

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::CREATE_NO_METADATA

Do not save any metadata for the snapshot

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::CREATE_REDEFINE

Replace/set the metadata with the snapshot

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::CREATE_QUIESCE

Quiesce the guest disks while taking the snapshot

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::CREATE_REUSE_EXT

Reuse the existing snapshot data files (if any)

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::CREATE_ATOMIC

Create multiple disk snapshots atomically

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::CREATE_LIVE

Create snapshot while the guest is running

SNAPSHOT DELETION

The following constants are useful when deleting snapshots

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::DELETE_CHILDREN

Recursively delete any child snapshots

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::DELETE_CHILDREN_ONLY

Only delete the child snapshots

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::DELETE_METADATA_ONLY

Only delete the snapshot metadata

SNAPSHOT LIST

The following constants are useful when listing snapshots

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::LIST_METADATA

Only list snapshots which have metadata

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::LIST_ROOTS

Only list snapshots which are root nodes in the tree

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::LIST_DESCENDANTS

Only list snapshots which are descendants of the current snapshot

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::LIST_LEAVES

Only list leaf nodes in the snapshot tree

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::LIST_NO_LEAVES

Only list non-leaf nodes in the snapshot tree

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::LIST_NO_METADATA

Only list snapshots without metadata

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::LIST_ACTIVE

Only list snapshots taken while the guest was running

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::LIST_INACTIVE

Only list snapshots taken while the guest was inactive

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::LIST_EXTERNAL

Only list snapshots stored in external disk images

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::LIST_INTERNAL

Only list snapshots stored in internal disk images

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::LIST_DISK_ONLY

Only list snapshots taken while the guest was running, which did not include memory state.

SNAPSHOT REVERT

The following constants are useful when reverting snapshots

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::REVERT_PAUSED

Leave the guest CPUs paused after reverting to the snapshot state

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::REVERT_RUNNING

Start the guest CPUs after reverting to the snapshot state

Sys::Virt::DomainSnapshot::REVERT_FORCE
