Title (EN) DISTRIBUTED VIRTUAL SWITCH FOR VIRTUALIZED COMPUTER SYSTEMS
(FR) COMMUTATEUR VIRTUEL DISTRIBUÉ POUR DES SYSTÈMES INFORMATIQUES VIRTUALISÉS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method for persisting a state of a virtual port in a virtualized computer system is described. A distributed virtual port (DVport) is stored in a persistent storage location, the DVport comprising a state of a corresponding virtual port and configuration settings of the virtual port. In addition, an association between the virtual port and the virtual network interface card (VNIC) connected to the virtual port is stored. When a virtual machine corresponding to the VNIC is restarted, the state from the DVport is restored to a new virtual port from the persistent storage location.
(FR)L'invention a pour objet un procédé de maintien d'un état d'un port virtuel dans un système informatique virtualisé. Un port virtuel distribué (DVport) est stocké dans un emplacement de stockage permanent, le DVport comprenant un état d'un port virtuel correspondant et des paramètres de configuration du port virtuel. De plus, une association entre le port virtuel et la carte d'interface de réseau virtuel (VNIC) connectée au port virtuel est mémorisée. Lorsqu'une machine virtuelle correspondant à la VNIC est redémarrée, l'état depuis le DVport est restauré sur un nouveau port virtuel à partir de l'emplacement de stockage permanent.
