Re: detach-interface success but domiflist still saw interface

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Thank you very much for the reply. But the interesting thing is that qemu monitoring
command info blocks returns the specified device has been detached while virsh domblklist
still displays the device. So does this imply qemu does not reply to libvirt when the device is

The man page for virsh states for the 'detach-interface' command:

 "Please see documentation for detach-device for known quirks."

And the 'quirks' part of 'detach-device':

  Quirk:  Device  unplug is asynchronous in most cases and requires guest
  cooperation. This means that it's up to the discretion of the guest  to
  disallow  or  delay  the unplug arbitrarily. As the libvirt API used in
  this command was designed as synchronous it returns success after  some
  timeout  even  if the device was not unplugged yet to allow further in‐
  teractions with the domain e.g. if the guest is  unresponsive.  Callers
  which  need  to make sure that the device was unplugged can use libvirt
  events (see virsh event) to be notified when  the  device  is  removed.
  Note that the event may arrive before the command returns.
