Re: NUMA node - Memory Only

Hi, Michal
Thank you for your help.

After compiled and installed libvirt-6.7.0, when I try virsh define xmlfile, it says "error: invalid argument: could not find capabilities for arch=x86_64 domaintype=kvm".

The way I compiled and installed libvirt-6.7.0 is according to

My system is Ubuntu20, originally I used apt to install the libvirt, it works well, just not support HMAT.

Do you know how to fix my current issue?

Thank You
Jin Huang

What you want to configure is so called HMAT (Heterogeneous Memory
Attribute Table). It can be configured by leaving out the @cpus
attribute completely. For instance like this:

<cpu mode='host-model' check='partial'>
      <cell id='0' cpus='0-5' memory='512000' unit='KiB' discard='yes'>
          <sibling id='0' value='10'/>
          <sibling id='1' value='21'/>
        <cache level='3' associativity='direct' policy='writeback'>
          <size value='10' unit='KiB'/>
          <line value='8' unit='B'/>
        <cache level='1' associativity='direct' policy='writeback'>
          <size value='8' unit='KiB'/>
          <line value='5' unit='B'/>
      <cell id='1' memory='512000' unit='KiB'>
          <sibling id='0' value='21'/>
          <sibling id='1' value='10'/>
        <latency initiator='0' target='0' cache='1' type='access'
        <bandwidth initiator='0' target='0' type='access' value='204800'

This was introduced in libvirt-6.6.0 so you may need to upgrade.
