Proxmox VE 1.5: combining KVM and OpenVZ
Posted Feb 26, 2010 18:27 UTC (Fri) by dowdle (subscriber, #659)
Depending on the filesystem size, it can take a while... although if the deltas are small for the second rsync pass, the perceived "downtime" caused by the migration is usually only a few seconds... with network connections maintained. For offline migrations, where the container is shutdown completely and then restarted on the target host, downtime is generally only 20-30 seconds... depending on how long it takes to start up the container.
I would imagine that Proxmox VE uses vzmigrate or their own script designed similar to vzmigrate, but I'm not positive.
