A custom KVM custom startup script for delayed VPS start up
A custom KVM custom startup script for delayed VPS start up would be appreciated as HDD based servers have significant I/O blocking and load issues with parallel startup of many VPS.
It was confirmed with support that the libvirtd team will not fix the issue where KVM VPS do not start up with a configure delay from /etc/sysconfig/libvirt-guests and supposedly for backward compatibility reasons. Support said they would be pursuing development of a custom startup method by node.
I would also like to request a option be developed to easily allow a individual node to be set prevent VPS from auto starting. This would be helpful for maintenance updates when we may have to do multiple reboots and do not wish VPS to start until we are complete.
