I have installed the first node of a new oVirt 3.5 setup with a hosted
engine VM. I have multiple networks: one public-accessible and one
private (with storage, iDRAC/IPMI, etc.). I set the engine VM up on the
public LAN, but now realize that it can't access the power control. I
tried to add a second NIC to the engine VM through the web interface,
but of course that doesn't work (because it isn't really managed there).
How can I add a second NIC to the hosted engine VM?

I have one Ovirt cluster and under this cluster all the guest machines
(such as centos,ubuntu,debian etc) almost 160 RCU processes running....
i searched on google about the RCU (It's kernel process "read-copy-upate")
I want to know how i can modify this 160 processes to 10-20 or how i can to
disable it....is there any bed impact if i disable it....
Hello oVirt users,
I'm in the process of developing a simple monitoring application for oVirt on the Android platform.
This is still under heavy development, but first usable version can be found at 
Please note that this is still a development preview so it can be a little unstable and the UI design is not yet perfect
(well ... design by programmer :-)) but I hope it could be useful. All comments, remarks,
feature requests and general feedback are very welcome. You can file any issues directly at .
Below follow the details of using and configuring the app.
The goal of this project was to create a simple Android app that would enable oVirt admins to configure conditions on Vms, Clusters,
or whole datacenter upon which they want to be notified. At the moment you can configure 3 types of "Triggers":
- when Vm CPU is over given level
- when Vm Memory usage is over given level
- when Vm enters given state (Down, Unknown ...)
You can also choose if you want just simple standard android notification or also want the device to vibrate.
You can also define all these triggers on per-Vm, per-Cluster or "global" level.
On first run the app will prompt you to enter connection parameters of your running oVirt engine instance.
API URL should be in the form of http://host:port/ovirt-engine/api
Username is user@domain i.e. admin@internal
Password is ... well the above user's password :-)
sadly only http (not https) is supported so far for endpoint url.
If you have any more questions feel free to use this thread and I'll do my best to answer them :-)
I would like to ask you an information.
After I have installed ovirt, I have created a pool of vm with name
like centos-?? (from 1 to 20)
and then ovirt generated 20 vm with name centos-1, centos-2, centos-3 etc. etc.
The problem is when the vm starts the hostname is not the same of the
vm name in ovirt but is the same name of the template.
Is it possible to make sure that the name of vm and the hostname is identical?
