Title (EN) MECHANISM TO CONTROL HARDWARE INTERRUPT ACKNOWLEDGEMENT IN A VIRTUAL MACHINE SYSTEM
(FR) MECANISME POUR LA COMMANDE DE CONFIRMATION D'INTERRUPTION MATERIELLE DANS UN SYSTEME DE MACHINE VIRTUELLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)In one embodiment, a method includes recognizing an interrupt pending during an operation of guest software, determining that the interrupt is to cause a transition of control to a virtual machine monitor (VMM), determining whether the interrupt is to be acknowledged prior to the transition of control to the VMM, and if the interrupt is to be acknowledged, acknowledging the interrupt and transitioning control to the VMM.
(FR)Dans un mode de réalisation, la présente invention a trait à un procédé comprenant la reconnaissance d'une interruption en attente lors d'une opération d'un logiciel client, la détermination que l'interruption va entraîner une transition de commande à un moniteur de machine virtuelle, la détermination de la confirmation ou non de l'interruption préalablement à la transition de commande au moniteur de machine virtuelle, et en cas de confirmation, la confirmation de l'interruption et la transition de commande au moniteur de machine virtuelle.
