[Qemu-devel] [PATCH 0/2] QEMU Backup Tool
Posted by Ishani Chugh, 1 week ago
This patch series is intended to introduce QEMU Backup tool.
qemu-backup will be a command-line tool for performing full and
incremental disk backups on running VMs. It is intended as a
reference implementation for management stack and backup developers
to see QEMU's backup features in action.
This patch series contains two patches,
          1) Adding Manpage for the tool
	  2) QEMU Backup command line tool

[Qemu-devel] [PATCH 1/2] Add manpage for QEMU Backup Tool
Posted by Ishani Chugh, 1 week ago
qemu-backup will be a command-line tool for performing full and
incremental disk backups on running VMs. It is intended as a
reference implementation for management stack and backup developers
to see QEMU's backup features in action. The following commit is an
initial implementation of manpage listing the commands which the
backup tool will support. The manpage wil be build along with other
docs when configure is provided with --enable-docs flag in the
location contrib/backup in build directory.

+@chapter  Command Descriptions
+@itemize
+@item qemu-backup guest add --guest guestname --qmp socketpath [--tcp]
+This command adds a guest to the configuration file given its path to qmp socket.
+
+example:
+qemu-backup guest add --id=fedora --qmp=/var/run/qemu/fedora.sock
+
+qemu-backup guest add --id=fedora --qmp=localhost:4444 --tcp
+
+@item qemu-backup guest list
+This commands lists the names of guests which are added to configuration file.
+
+@item qemu-backup drive add --guest guestname --id driveid --target target
+This command adds different drives for backup in a particular guest by giving the name of drive to be backed up and target imagefile in which we want to store the drive backup.
+
+example: qemu-backup drive add --guest=fedora --id=root --target=/backup/root.img
+
+@item qemu-backup drive add --all --guest guestname --destination destination
+This command adds all the drives of the guest for backup other than CDROM drive and read-only drives. Here all the backup drives will have the same names as original drives and target will be the destination folder.
+
+example: qemu-backup drive add --all --guest fedora --destination =/backup/fedora/
+
+@item qemu-backup drive list --guest guestname
+This commands gives the names of the drive present in a guest which are added for backup.
+
+example: qemu-backup drive list --guest=fedora
+
+@item qemu-backup backup --guest guestname
+
+This command makes the backup of the drives, in their respective given destinations. The ids of drive and their destinations are taken from the configuration file.
+
+example: qemu-backup backup --guest=fedora
+
+@item qemu-backup restore --guest guestname
+This command is needed if we want to restore the backup. It will list the commands to be run for performing the same but will not perform any action.
+
+example: qemu-backup restore --guest=fedora
+
+@item qemu-backup guest remove --guest guestname
+This command removes the guest from the configuration file.
+
+example: qemu-backup guest remove --guest=fedora
+
+@item qemu-backup drive remove --guest guestname --id driveid
+This command helps remove a drive which is set for backup in configuration of given host.
+
+example: drive remove --guest=fedora --id=root

Is --tcp still necessary?  I thought you decided to use unix:/tcp:
socketpath syntax.
[Qemu-devel] [PATCH 2/2] backup: QEMU Backup Tool
Posted by Ishani Chugh, 1 week ago
qemu-backup will be a command-line tool for performing full and
incremental disk backups on running VMs. It is intended as a
reference implementation for management stack and backup developers
to see QEMU's backup features in action. The tool writes details of
guest in a configuration file and the data is retrieved from the file
while creating a backup. The location of config file can be set as an
environment variable QEMU_BACKUP_CONFIG. The usage is as follows:

Add a guest
python qemu-backup.py guest add --guest <guest_name> --qmp <socket_path>

Add a drive for backup in a specified guest
python qemu-backup.py drive add --guest <guest_name> --id <drive_id> [--target <target_file_path>]

Create backup of the added drives:
python qemu-backup.py backup --guest <guest_name>

List all guest configs in configuration file:
python qemu-backup.py guest list

Restore operation
python qemu-backup.py restore --guest <guest-name>

Remove a guest
python qemu-backup.py guest remove --guest <guest_name>
