I'd like to propose two new operations on virtual machines: *suspend*
: /Suspend an active domain, the process is frozen
without further access to CPU resources and I/O but the memory used by
the domain at the hypervisor level will stay allocated./
: /Resume a suspended domain, the process is restarted
from the state where it was frozen by calling "suspend"./
This feature has been partially implemented in previous patches ("[PATCH
0/3] VM suspend/resume", from Jan 21st), and its progress should be
resumed soon. The UI will have to be updated accordingly by adding
buttons to suspend and resume a VM, somewhat like the buttons which
start and stop a VM.
Any feedback will be very welcome.
