Title: VIRTUAL NETWORK MANAGEMENT
Abstract:
Provided in an instance is a virtual network management method. According to the method, a first computational domain and a second computational domain can be created for a first Hypervisor and a second Hypervisor, which are heterogeneous, respectively. The first Hypervisor manages a first virtual machine (VM) and a first virtual switch (vSwitch), and the second Hypervisor manages a second VM and a second vSwitch. Topology management information is created on the basis of topology of a virtual network, the topology management information comprising first virtual network topology information for the first computational domain, second virtual network topology information for the second computational domain, first configuration information for the first vSwitch, and second configuration information for the second vSwitch. After the topology management information is associated with the first computational domain and the second computational domain separately, the first configuration information and the second configuration information in the topology management information are issued to the first vSwitch and the second vSwitch respectively, such that the first vSwitch and the second vSwitch realize message forwarding between the first VM and the second VM according to the first configuration information and the second configuration information respectively.
