管理虚拟机的装置、系统和方法 Apparatus, system and method for managing virtual machines

技术领域 FIELD

[0001] 本发明涉及计算机领域,更具体地说,涉及用于管理虚拟机的装置、系统和方法。 [0001] The present invention relates to the field of computers and, more particularly, devices, systems and methods for managing virtual machines relates.

背景技术 Background technique

[0002] 在虚拟化环境下,在每个物理机上通过虚拟层提供多个虚拟机。 [0002] In the virtual environment, virtual machine by providing a plurality of layers on each physical machine. 典型的虚拟化架构如图1所示。 Typical virtualization architecture shown in Figure 1. 虚拟层直接运行于物理层上。 The virtualization layer runs directly on the physical layer. 通过虚拟层提供了4个虚拟机,在每个虚拟机上分别运行不同的应用。 Providing a virtual machine by four layers, each running a different application on each virtual machine. 虚拟机对于应用来说是不可见的。 Virtual machine for the application is not visible. 也就是说,从应用的角度来看,运行在虚拟机上和直接运行在物理机上完全一样。 In other words, from the application point of view, to run on a virtual machine and run directly on exactly the same physical machine. 虚拟层对物理资源进行管理,向应用提供"模拟"的物理资源接口。 Virtual layer to the physical resources management, the application provides "analog" physical resources interface. 由于应用所面对的"物理资源接口"都是虚拟层模拟出来的, 因此在部署应用时不用考虑实际的物理资源细节,从而大大增加了部署应用的灵活性。 Since the application face "physical resource interface" is simulated virtual layer, so when deploying applications without regard to the details of actual physical resources, thereby greatly increasing the flexibility to deploy applications. [0003] 如果需要对承载虚拟机的物理机进行硬件维护,比如更换硬盘,增加内存等,就必须停止物理机的运转;如果要求应用不能停止运行,就需要将待停止的源物理机上的虚拟机迁移到另一台物理机即目的物理机。 [0003] If desired physical machine host the virtual machine hardware maintenance, such as replacing a hard disk, additional memory, etc., it is necessary to stop the operation of the physical machine; virtual on if the required application is not stopped, it is necessary to be stopped source physical machine machine is migrated to another physical machine that is object of the physical machine. 迁移虚拟机属于系统级操作,而硬件维护属于硬件级操作。 Migration of virtual machines belonging to the operating system level, while hardware maintenance is a hardware-level operations. 在大型的信息管理系统中,系统级操作由系统管理员在系统控制台完成,硬件级操作由硬件工程师在机房完成。 In large-scale information management systems, system-level operating system console by the system administrator, hardware-level operations are performed by hardware engineers in the engine room. 系统控制台和机房可能处于有较大时差的距离相当远的物理位置。 And the system console room difference may be at a greater distance from the physical location of considerable distance. 或者为了安全考虑系统管理员只能进入系统控制台而不能进入机房,硬件工程师只能进入机房而不能进入系统控制台。 For security reasons, or system administrators can only enter the system console can not enter the room, hardware engineers can only enter the room but can not enter the system console. 在这些情况下,硬件维护流程可能包括:系统管理员进行系统级操作,将虚拟机从源物理机迁移到目的物理机;系统管理员通知硬件工程师可以开始对源物理机进行维护;硬件工程师断开源物理机的电源,进行硬件维护;硬件工程师通知系统工程师维护完毕;系统工程师将虚拟机从目的物理机迁移回源物理机。 In these cases, hardware maintenance processes may include: system administrators for system level operations, to migrate a virtual machine from a physical source physical machine to the destination machine; hardware engineers, system administrators can begin to notice the source physical machine maintenance; hardware engineer off the power of open source physical machine, hardware maintenance; maintenance engineers, hardware engineers finish the notification system; the system engineer to migrate virtual machines from the destination back to the source physical machine physical machine. 由此可见, 必须要系统管理员和硬件工程师协作才能完成一次完整的硬件维护流程。 Thus, the system administrator must collaborate and hardware engineers to complete a full hardware maintenance processes. 这使得硬件维护的人力成本变大。 This makes the human cost of hardware maintenance becomes large. 此外,特别地,如果控制台和机房所处的物理位置之间有较大的时差,这一硬件维护流程可能需要以天记的时间,这削弱了系统应对突发事件的能力。 Furthermore, in particular, if there is a large difference between the physical location of the console and the engine room is located, the hardware maintenance process can take days to remember the time, which weakens the ability of the system to respond to emergencies.

[0008] 按照本发明实施例的技术方案,在复杂的信息管理系统中,硬件工程师可以在机房内自行将需要进行硬件维护的源物理机上的虚拟机迁移到目的物理机,然后对已经不对外提供服务的源物理机断电以便进行硬件维护。 [0008] according to the technical solutions of the embodiments of the present invention, the complex information management system, hardware engineers can itself will need to be the virtual machines on the source physical machine hardware maintenance migrates to the destination physical machine in the machine room, and then no longer Foreign source physical machine service outages for hardware maintenance. 整个过程无需系统管理员参与。 The whole process no system administrator involvement. 这样,可以减少维护系统硬件的人力成本,还可以更快地对系统的硬件问题作出响应。 In this way, you can reduce the human cost of maintaining the system hardware, you can also quickly respond to hardware problems of the system. 同时,由于硬件工程师只能对物理机进行虚拟机迁移,而并不能访问物理机中的任何数据,更不能访问由物理机中的虚拟机所封装的数据,从而不会降低信息管理系统的安全性。 At the same time, due to a hardware engineer can only physical machine virtual machine migration, but can not access any data on the physical machine, but can not be accessed from the physical machine in a virtual machine package of data, so as not to reduce the security information management system sex.

[0023] 如上所述,所述现场管理装置200连接到各物理机,而连接的方式有多种,因此获取模块201可以通过多种手段从物理机获取与该物理机上与虚拟机有关的状态参数。 [0023] As described above, a variety of the field management apparatus 200 connected to the respective physical machines connected manner, thus obtaining module 201 may obtain a state associated with the virtual machine on the physical machine from a physical machine by various means parameter. 本领域技术人员在确定将以上任意一种连接方式作为所述现场管理装置到所述各物理机之间的物理电气连接后,可以很容易地设计出满足不同需要的通信协议,来实现现场管理装置和物理机之间的数据连接。 Those skilled in the art in determining any of the above as the physical connection between the electrical field management apparatus is connected to each of the physical machine, can be easily designed to meet the different needs of the communication protocol to achieve site management a data connection between the device and the physical machine.

[0024] —般来说,物理机上的虚拟层提供应用服务供外部装置调用以便与物理机建立数据连接。 [0024] - In general, a virtual machine on the physical layer provides application services for the external device to call up a data connection with the physical machine. 在建立了数据连接之后,现场管理装置相当于终端,而物理机上相当于服务器。 After the data connection is established, the field corresponding to the terminal management apparatus, and the server corresponds to the physical machine. 一种最常用的应用服务就是通过由网卡和网线等组成的通用网络线路提供与外部装置之间的数据连接。 The connection between a data application service is most commonly provided by a common network line card and the other components of the network cable with an external device. 在该装置通过网线与物理机相连的情况下,可以将所连接的各物理机的IP地址预先存放在该装置中。 In the case of this apparatus connected via a network cable and the physical machine may be a physical IP address of each machine connected previously stored in the device. 对应于每个IP地址,即对应于每台物理机,可以进一步存放相应的用户名、密码以及端口号等。 Corresponding to each IP address, i.e., corresponding to each physical unit can further store a corresponding user name, password and port number. 这样,该现场管理装置通过IP地址、用户名、密码以及端口号就可以调用该应用服务从而建立数据连接。 In this way, the site management device through the IP address, user name, password, and port number of the application service can be invoked in order to establish a data connection. 现场管理装置利用该数据连接经由网线向物理机发送查询所述状态参数的命令,物理机上的虚拟层通过网卡接收到该命令,则再次经由网线将所述状态参数发送给现场管理装置200。 Site management device using the data connection to send command to query the status parameters to physical machines via a network cable, a virtual layer on a physical machine receives the command via the card, then sends the status parameters again via the network cable to the field management apparatus 200.

[0025] 又例如,该装置通过专用的线路连接到物理机上的专用接口,经由专用物理电气连接向物理机发送查询所述状态参数的命令,物理机上的虚拟层通过该专用接口接收到该命令,则再次经由该专用物理电气连接将所述状态参数发送给现场管理装置200。 [0025] As another example, which is connected via a dedicated line to a dedicated interface on the physical machine, connected to the transmission command to query the status parameters to physical machines via a dedicated physical electrical, a virtual layer on a physical machine receives the command via the dedicated interface it is connected again to send the status parameter to the field management apparatus 200 via the dedicated physical electrical connection. 特别地, Particularly,

作物理机,自然可以获得该物理机上的所述状态参数。 As a physical machine, the natural state parameter can be obtained on the physical machine. 由于串行通信线路的通信距离受到 Since the communication distance by serial communication line

限制,因此在采用串行通信线路作为物理电气连接的情况下,所述现场管理装置优选地只 Restrictions, in the case of a serial communication line is a physical electrical connection, the field management apparatus preferably only

连接到刀片服务器系统内部的各物理机或机架式服务器系统内部的各物理机。 Each physical machine is connected to the interior of each physical machine or inside the blade rack server system.

[0026] 对于以其他物理电气连接,例如通用串行总线、并行通信线路或者刀片服务器系 [0026] For electrical connection to other physical, such as a universal serial bus, parallel communication line, or a blade server system

[0027] 获取模块201可以定期地获取物理机的状态参数,也可以根据从操作模块202接 [0027] The acquisition module 201 may periodically obtain the physical parameters of the state machine 202 may be connected to the operation module in accordance with

收到的获取指令来获取物理机的所述状态参数。 The status acquisition instruction to acquire a physical machine parameters received. 一般来说,可以获取现场管理装置200所 In general, site management apparatus can acquire 200

连接的所有物理机的状态参数;在所述获取指令的指令格式支持指定物理机的情况下,也 All physical parameter status of connected; in a case where the instruction obtaining instruction format supports the specified physical machine, but also

可以根据所述获取指令获取一部分物理机的状态参数。 You may acquire a portion of the physical machine state parameters according to the acquired instruction.

[0028] 所述获取模块201所获取的状态参数发送给操作模块202。 [0028] The acquisition module 201 transmits the acquired status parameter to the operation module 202.

[0029] 操作模块202,用于根据所述状态参数控制指示模块的工作,并且确定源物理机和目的物理机以控制迁移模块的工作。 [0029] The operation module 202, a parameter indicative of a control module according to the state of the work, and to determine the source and destination physical machine physical machine to control the migration module work.

[0030] 操作模块202基于现场输入确定源物理机,所述现场外部输入即硬件工程师在机房内通过位于该现场管理装置外壳上的输入模块205的输入。 [0030] The operation input determination module 202 based on field source physical machine, i.e., the field input external hardware engineers in the engine room through an input located on the housing of the field management apparatus 205 of the input module. 可以提供任意类型的输入接口作为所述输入模块205,例如鼠标、键盘、触摸屏等,以便接收硬件工程师的输入。 We can provide any type of input interface module 205 as the input, such as a mouse, keyboard, touch screen, etc., so as to receive input hardware engineers. 作为替换地,如果所述现场管理装置被实现为刀片服务器系统背板上的芯片和外围模块,则所述外壳指的是刀片服务器系统的机箱,输入模块作为外围模块之一位于刀片服务器系统的机箱上。 Alternatively, if the field management apparatus is implemented as a chip and peripheral modules on the server blade system backplane, said housing means a chassis blade server system, the input module as the module is located at one peripheral blade server system the chassis.

[0031] 在一个实施例中,由操作模块202接收硬件工程师对源物理机和目的物理机的指定,则操作模块202控制指示模块203显示所述状态参数以便硬件工程师可以根据所述状态参数决定目的物理机;操作模块202进一步接收对目的物理机的指定。 [0031] In one embodiment, the operation module 202 receives the specified hardware engineers source and destination physical machine physical machine, the operation control module 202 instructing module 203 to display the status parameters to hardware engineers may decide according to the state parameter destination physical machine; operating module 202 further receives designation of the destination physical machine. 在确定了源物理机和目的物理机之后,操作模块202向迁移模块204发送迁移指令,所述迁移指令包括源物理机标识、虚拟机标识及与该虚拟机对应的目的物理机标识。 After determining the source and destination physical machine physical machine, the operation module 202 sends a migration instruction to the migration module 204, a migration instruction includes a source physical machine identifier, identifying the virtual machine and the virtual machine corresponding to the destination physical unit identifier. 需要说明的是,对目的物理机的指定可以是针对源物理机上的所有虚拟机的,这种特殊情况下所述迁移指令可以仅包括源物理机标识和目的物理机标识。 Incidentally, designated for the purposes of the physical machine may be for all the virtual machines on the source physical machine, in this particular case the migration instruction physical machine may include only the source and destination physical unit identifier ID.

[0032] 在另一个实施例中,硬件工程师仅指定源物理机,现场管理装置200自行决定目的物理机。 [0032] Example hardware engineers specify only the source physical machine, the field management apparatus 200 to decide the destination physical machine in another embodiment. 操作模块202根据所述状态参数决定目的物理机,并且向迁移模块204发送包括源物理机标识、虚拟机标识及与该虚拟机对应的目的物理机标识的迁移指令。 Operation module 202 determines a physical object parameters according to the state machine, and transmits a migration instruction including the source physical machine identifier, identifying the virtual machine and the virtual machine corresponding to a destination physical unit identifier to the migration module 204. 同样,操作模块202所决定的目的物理机可能对源物理机上的所有虚拟机均相同,这种特殊情况下所述迁移指令可以仅包括源物理机标识和目的物理机标识。 Similarly, the operating module the determined destination physical machine 202 may be the same for all the virtual machines on the source physical machine, in this particular case the migration instruction physical machine may include only the source and destination physical unit identifier ID.

[0033] 需要说明的是,无论所述现场管理装置通过何种方式与物理机建立数据连接,硬件工程师仅仅能通过操作模块进行指定源物理机和/或目的物理机,而不能进行其他操作。 [0033] Incidentally, regardless of the field management apparatus is established by the manner in which the data connection with the physical machine, by operating only the module hardware engineers specifying source physical machine and / or a destination physical machine, but can not perform other operations. 这是因为,从数据安全的角度考虑,硬件工程师不应该能够通过所述现场管理装置访问物理机上的数据。 This is because, from a viewpoint of data security, hardware engineers should not be able to access the data management apparatus on the physical machine field. 这可以通过采用命令过滤技术让操作模块204仅接受对源物理机和/或目的物理机的指定,而不接受其他任何命令来实现。 This technology allows the filtering operation module 204 accepts only the specified source physical machine and / or a destination physical machine by using the command without receiving any other command.

[0034] 指示模块203,用于在操作模块202的控制下指示源物理机上的虚拟机是否已经全部迁移。 [0034] The indication module 203, a virtual machine indicates that the source physical machine under operator control module 202 whether the migration of all.

[0035] 在由硬件工程师指定目的物理机的实施例中,所述指示模块203显示获取模块201所获取的状态参数。 [0035] In an embodiment of hardware engineers specified destination physical machine, the indication module 203 displays state parameter acquiring module 201 acquired. 如上所述,状态参数包括源物理机上有多少个虚拟机,因此通过显示状态参数自然就可以指示源物理机上的虚拟机是否已经全部迁移到其他物理机。 As described above, the state parameters include the number of virtual machines on the source physical machine, a virtual machine can be naturally indicating whether the source physical machine has been migrated to another physical parameter status through the display unit. 在本实施例中,指示模块203可以包括小块的显示屏,用于显示所连接的各物理机中与虚拟机有关的状态参数,以便硬件工程师可以根据这些状态参数决定如何将源物理机上的虚拟机迁移到目的物理机。 Embodiment, the indication module 203 may include a small display for displaying the virtual machine state associated with physical parameters of the connected machine, so that the hardware engineers can determine how the parameters on the source physical machine state in accordance with the present embodiment these virtual machine migration to the destination physical machine. 该显示屏由操作模块202根据所述状态参数控制。 This operation is controlled by the display module 202 according to the state.

[0036] 在现场管理装置200自行决定目的物理机的实施例中。 [0036] In an embodiment of the field management apparatus 200 to decide the destination physical machine. 所述指示模块203可以只包括简单的指示器例如发光二极管或者发声元件,用于告知硬件工程师源物理机上的虚拟机已经全部迁移,可以对源物理机进行硬件维护。 The indication module 203 may simply comprise an indicator or sounding elements such as light emitting diodes, to inform the virtual machine on the physical machine hardware engineers have all the migration source may be a source of physical machine hardware maintenance. 该指示器也由操作模块202根据所述状态参数控制。 The indicator also is controlled by the operating module 202 according to the state.

[0037] 当然,为了进一步简单起见,可以不提供指示模块。 [0037] Of course, for further simplicity, the module may not provide an indication. 硬件工程师根据经验,在等待足够长时间后将该物理机断电以便进行硬件维护。 The hardware engineers experience off after waiting long enough for the physical machine hardware maintenance. 此时,如果由硬件工程师指定源物理机和目的物理机,那么可以进一步省略获取模块。 At this time, if the specified source and destination physical machine physical machine hardware engineers, the acquisition module may be further omitted. 作为对所述指示模块的替代,可以增加自动断电模块,操作模块202控制该自动断电模块的方式与控制上述指示器的方式类似。 As an alternative to the indication module can be increased automatically power module, the module 202 controls the operation mode of the automatic power control module and the manner similar to the above-described pointer. [0038] 指示模块位于所述现场管理装置的外壳上。 [0038] indicates that the module is located on the housing of the field management apparatus. 作为替换地,如果所述现场管理装置被实现为刀片服务器系统背板上的芯片和外围模块,则所述外壳指的是刀片服务器系统的机箱,指示模块作为外围模块之一位于刀片服务器系统的机箱上。 Alternatively, if the field management apparatus is implemented as a chip and peripheral modules on the server blade system backplane, said housing means is a blade server chassis system, indicated as one of peripheral modules located in the blade server system the chassis.

[0039] 迁移模块204,用于在操作模块202的控制下将虚拟机从源物理机迁移到目的物理机。 [0039] The migration module 204, for operating module 202 under control of the virtual machines from the source to the destination physical machine physical machine.

[0040] 如上所述,现场管理装置200通过通用网络线路或专用物理电气连接连接到各物理机,迁移模块204通过该通用网络线路或专用物理电气连接,分别与源物理机和目的物理机上的虚拟层通信,从而完成虚拟机的迁移。 [0040] As described above, the field management apparatus 200 through the general network connection or dedicated physical lines to each of the physical machine electrically, migration module 204 is connected via the network line or a dedicated physical common electrical source on a physical machine and of a destination physical unit, respectively virtual communication layer, thereby completing the migration of the virtual machine. 这种实现方法的优点是现场管理装置可以完全掌握迁移过程从而掌握迁移何时完成;缺点是需要现场管理装置有比较强的处理能力。 The advantage of this implementation is that the field management apparatus can completely control the migration process is completed when such control migration; site management apparatus disadvantage is the need of a relatively strong handling capacity.

[0041] 在一个实施例中,物理机上的虚拟层之间可以彼此通信自行完成虚拟机迁移。 [0041] In one embodiment, between a virtual machine on the physical layer may communicate with each other to complete their own virtual machine migration. 在这种情况下,迁移模块204根据所述迁移指令,将目标物理机的标识发送给源物理机,由源物理机的虚拟层直接与目的物理机通信开始虚拟机迁移。 In this case, the migration module 204 according to the migration instruction, the physical identification of the target machine to a source physical machine, migrated from the source physical layer of the virtual machine directly to a communication destination physical machine starts the virtual machine. 这种实现方法的优点是现场管理装置只负责启动迁移,对处理能力的要求较低;缺点是现场管理装置需要通过对所述状态参数的获取来确定迁移是否完成。 The advantage of this implementation is that the field is only responsible for initiating the migration management apparatus, it requires less processing capacity; disadvantage site management apparatus is required to determine whether the migration is completed by obtaining the state parameter.

[0042] 无论是以上哪种情况,由于该迁移只涉及到虚拟层,因此各虚拟机上的应用不会发现进行了虚拟机迁移,从而保持连续的运行。 [0042] Whether the above cases, the migration involves only due to the virtual layer, so the application on each virtual machine will not be discovered virtual machine migration, in order to maintain continuous operation. 源物理机和目的物理机之间的数据交换可以通过上述专用物理电气连接或通用网络线路进行。 Data exchange between the source and destination physical machine or a general-purpose physical network can be connected via the dedicated physical lines for electrically.

[0043] 除了以上模块以外,所述现场管理装置200还可以具备验证模块,该模块被配置为验证当前操作者是否有权执行虚拟机迁移。 [0043] In addition to the above modules, the field management apparatus 200 may further includes a verification module, the module is configured to verify whether the operator is authorized to perform the current virtual machine migration. 如上所述,由于现场管理装置200位于机房内,而机房本身往往已经有相应的验证装置,因此现场管理装置200可以不用再次进行验证,从而省略所述验证模块。 As described above, since the field management apparatus 200 located in the engine room, and the room itself often has a corresponding verification means management device 200 so the field can not be verified again, thereby omitting the authentication module.

[0044] 图3是根据本发明实施例的用于管理虚拟机的方法的流程图。 [0044] FIG. 3 is a flowchart of a method for managing a virtual machine of the embodiment of the present invention. [0045] 步骤301,现场管理装置通过从外部接收对源物理机的指定来确定源物理机。 [0045] Step 301, the source field management apparatus determines physical machine by receiving a specification of a physical machine from an external source. [0046] 在步骤301之前,可以进一步包括验证当前操作者是否有权执行虚拟机迁移的步骤,只有在验证结果为是时,才进行步骤301 。 [0046] Prior to step 301, it may further include the step of verifying whether the current operator authorized to perform virtual machine migration, only the result of verification is only step 301.

[0047] 步骤302,现场管理装置获取各物理机上与虚拟机有关的状态参数。 [0047] Step 302, the field management apparatus acquires the status parameter of each physical machine to a virtual machine.

[0048] 步骤303,现场管理装置确定目的物理机,并且将源物理机上的虚拟机迁移到目的 [0048] Step 303, the field management apparatus determines the destination physical machine, and the migration of virtual machines on the source physical machine to a destination

物理机。 Physical machine.

[0049] 可以通过接收对目的物理机的指定来确定目的物理机标识,也可以是根据所述状态参数确定目的物理机。 [0049] The object of the physical machine may be determined by receiving a specified identification of the destination physical unit, the physical object may be determined according to the state machine parameters. 以下详细描述根据所述状态参数确定目的物理机的过程。 The following detailed description of the process of determining the physical object parameters according to the state machine. [0050] 首先从现场管理装置所管理的所有物理机中除了源物理机以外的其他物理机中选择一部分物理机作为候选目的物理机。 [0050] First, to select a candidate object as part of the physical machine physical machine from all physical machines managed by site management apparatus in addition to other sources than the physical machine physical machine. 例如,在现场管理装置位于机架上的情况下,从机架中除了源物理机以外的其他物理机中选择一部分作为候选目的物理机。 For example, in the case of the field management apparatus located on the frame, selecting a portion of the physical machine as a candidate object from the rack, in addition to other sources than the physical machine physical machine. 之所以要先进行候选目的物理机的选择,是因为目的物理机在接收虚拟机时需要消耗比较大的计算和存储资源,如果一台物理机的当前负载率过高,则原则上来讲不适于作为目的物理机。 The reason why the first selected candidate destination physical machine, because the purpose of physical machines need to consume large computing and storage resources when receiving the virtual machine, if the current rate is too high load a single physical machine, it is in principle not suitable as a destination physical machine. 可以根据步骤302中所获取的状态参数,判断某台物理机的当前负载率是否低于第一阈值。 The state parameter may be acquired in step 302, determines whether the current load rate of a physical machine below a first threshold. 如果某台物理机的当前负载率低于第一阈值,则将该物理机作为候选目的物理机。 If the current load rate of a physical machine is below a first threshold value, then the physical machine as a candidate destination physical machine. 但是由于物理机负载率是随着时间变化的,因此当前负载率并非选择目的物理机的决定因素。 However, due to a physical machine load factor changes over time, so the current load factor is not the decisive factor was the purpose of a physical machine. 在现场管理装置所管理的物理机较少的情况下,可以不用考虑当前的物理机负载率,或者说除源物理机以外的其他物理机均为候选目的物理机,即本步骤是可以省略的。 In the case of less-site management apparatus managing the physical machines can not consider the current load rate of a physical machine, or other physical machines are candidate destination physical unit other than the source physical machine, i.e. this step may be omitted .

[0051] 在确定了候选目的物理机之后,根据步骤302中所获取的状态参数,判断任意一台候选目的物理机是否能够向源物理机上的任意一个虚拟机提供足够多的资源。 [0051] After determining candidate destination physical machine, according to the status parameter acquired in step 302, the candidate object is determined Renyiyitai physical machine is capable of providing enough resources to any one of the virtual machines on the source physical machine. 如上所述,状态参数包括向虚拟机分配了多少硬件资源。 As noted above, the state parameters including the virtual machine is allocated a number of hardware resources. 现场管理装置通过来自源物理机的状态参数,可以确定源物理机上为各待迁移虚拟机分配了多少硬件资源;现场管理装置还可以通过某候选目的物理机的状态参数确定当前候选目的物理机上已经存在的虚拟机已经占用了多少硬件资源,从而确定该候选目的物理机上是否有足够多的剩余硬件资源分配给当前待迁移虚拟机。 Site management apparatus via a state parameter from the source physical machine, on can determine whether the source physical machines each be migrated virtual machine is allocated a number of hardware resources; site management apparatus may further determine the status parameters for a candidate destination physical machine on the current candidate destination physical machine has existing virtual machine has occupied much hardware resources to determine whether there are enough remaining hardware resources to be assigned to the current migration of virtual machines on the candidate destination physical machine. 如果该候选目的物理机能够向该虚拟机提供足够的硬件资源,则将该候选目的物理机作为实际的目的物理机,将该虚拟机迁移到该目的物理机上。 If the candidate object to provide adequate physical machine hardware resources to the virtual machine, then the candidate destination physical machine as the actual destination physical machine, to migrate the virtual machines on the destination physical machine. [0052] 在候选物理机数量较大的情况下,现场管理装置可以采取不同的策略来优化虚拟机的迁移。 [0052] In a large number of physical machines candidates, the site management device can take different strategies to optimize the migration of virtual machines. 比如说,综合考虑各待迁移虚拟机所要求占用的资源和各候选目的物理机上已经被占用的资源,让迁移完成后各目的物理机上的资源占用比例比较均衡。 For example, consider all the resources on the virtual machines to be migrated occupied resources and each candidate destination physical machine has been occupied by the requirements, so that migration occupancy ratio of the resources on each physical machine after the completion of the purpose of a more balanced. 又比如说,首先选择已经被占用的资源比例最小的候选目的物理机作为实际的目的物理机,并且向该目的物理机上迁移尽可能多的虚拟机,直到所剩余的硬件资源不足够分配给源物理机上任意一个剩余的虚拟机为止。 Also, for example, select the first smallest candidate object of the proportion of resources already occupied physical machine as the actual purpose of the physical machine, and as many virtual machines migrated to the destination physical machine, until the remaining insufficient hardware resources assigned to the source Until the physical machine according to any one of the remaining virtual machine.

[0053] 步骤304,现场管理装置指示源物理机上的虚拟机已经迁移完毕,可以对源物理机进行硬件维护。 [0053] Step 304, the virtual machine on-site management apparatus instructs the migration source physical machine has been completed, the source may be physical machine hardware maintenance.

[0054] 虽然已经图示和描述了本发明的若干示例性实施例,不过本领域技术人员可以理解的是,在不偏离本发明原则和精神的前提下,可以对这些实施例进行改变,本发明的范围 [0054] While there have been shown and described several exemplary embodiments of the present invention, although those skilled in the art will be appreciated that, without departing from the principles and spirit of the invention, changes may be made, in these embodiments of the present the scope of the invention
