[libvirt] [PATCH libvirt-python] virNodeInfo.memory is in KiB

Posted by Philipp Hahn 6 days ago
but the Python library does an extra left shift of 10 bits returning MiB
instead:

Not sure why you're quoting that commit has as it is unrelated.

This use of MB is from pretty much day 1 in 506fb7d8

We can't change this as it would break every single existing user of this
API which have been written to expect this to be a MB value.

Yes, you're right, that was the wrong commit hash and 506fb7d8 is the
correct one.

Okay. This is already documented in libvirt-override-api.xml:

> 102     <function name='virNodeGetInfo' file='python'>                                                                                                                             
> 103       <info>Extract hardware information about the Node. Note that the memory size is reported in MiB instead of KiB.</info>

I was only looking at the C-API documentation.
So my patch can go to >/dev/null.

Sorry for the noise.

Philipp
