Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies masakari-13.0.3.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).


Virtual Machine High Availability (VMHA) service for OpenStack

Masakari provides Virtual Machine High Availability (VMHA) service for OpenStack clouds by automatically recovering the KVM-based Virtual Machine(VM)s from failure events such as VM process down, provisioning process down, and nova-compute host failure. It also provides API service for manage and control the automated rescue mechanism.

NOTE: Use masakari only if instance path is configured on shared storage system i.e, 'instances_path' config option of nova has a path of shared directory otherwise instance data will be lost after the evacuation of instance from failed host if, * instance is booted from image * flavor using ephemeral disks is used
