15:01:44 <openstack> The meeting name has been set to 'xenapi'
15:01:53 <johnthetubaguy> I think BobBall is on holiday, is anyone here today?
15:02:03 <pvo> o/
15:02:07 <pvo> but probably not as useful as bob
15:02:14 <johnthetubaguy> nice to see you though
15:02:23 <johnthetubaguy> anyone got anything to raise
15:02:41 <johnthetubaguy> we just changed the clocks in the UK, so that may cause some confusion
15:02:54 <pvo> heh. that always happens.
15:03:43 <johnthetubaguy> #help please review the summit session plan https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/IcehouseXenAPIRoadmap
15:04:21 <johnthetubaguy> I haven't really got anything else to chat about, but will hang on to see if mate or anyone else joins and has something to say
15:04:35 <pvo> sounds good. Thanks john.
15:05:05 <johnthetubaguy> no problem
15:05:40 <pvo> Consider breaking 1:1 hypervisor / nova-compute mapping
15:05:44 <pvo> I'm very interested in this.
15:06:11 <pvo> we would reduce our footprint by a pretty large factor
15:06:30 <johnthetubaguy> yes, it would really help
15:06:55 <johnthetubaguy> my thinking is several nova-computes on a single VM, a separate process and config file for each nova-compute
15:06:57 <pvo> johnthetubaguy: not sure if you  know, but is Citrix moving away from vhd?
15:07:06 <johnthetubaguy> then we only have a few things
15:07:12 <pvo> or did I misread that somewhere?
15:07:24 <pvo> or was it msft moving away from it?
15:07:36 <johnthetubaguy> I know Citrix want LVHD support, but I don't see the project dropping VHD, but it might add qcow2 rather than VHDX but its not clear yet
15:08:20 <johnthetubaguy> ah, that might be VHDX, it removes the 2TB limit in VHD
15:08:28 <pvo> ah, thats it.
15:08:32 <pvo> googling turned it up.
15:08:41 <pvo> Is that something we would want to add on a wishlist?
15:08:47 <johnthetubaguy> the only thing keeping the 1:1 mapping is stuff like adding the disk partition
15:08:50 <johnthetubaguy> VHDX?
15:09:29 <pvo> maybe. I'm doing more research before I open my mouth. : )
15:09:48 <johnthetubaguy> yeah, I think qcow2 is probably better bet
15:10:05 <pvo> I was going to advocate qcow2 but I need to look at all the specs for vhdx
15:10:12 <pvo> since I just vaguely heard of it.
15:10:25 <pvo> maybe its the cat's meow.
15:10:32 <johnthetubaguy> right, VHDX got some optimizations that Citrix VHD already added, but yeah
15:10:52 <johnthetubaguy> the way Xen is going qcow2 might be more likely
15:11:08 <pvo> it would make more sense here for the interop.
15:21:04 <johnthetubaguy> OK, so we should wrap up
15:21:10 <johnthetubaguy> see some of you in HK
