Cloudmin version 5.7 is now available for download from our YUM and APT repositories. Existing users should see a message on the Cloudmin Information page after logging in, prompting to upgrade to the new release.
This update contains several new features, including :
- A separate guaranteed memory limit can now be set for OpenVZ containers, at creation time and using the Resource Limits page. This allows over-committing of memory, by setting the guaranteed limit lower than the maximum. Over-committing can be enabled with a new option on the Edit OpenVZ Host page.
- Added support for creating Xen and KVM disks with ext3 and ext4 filesystems.
- Real systems can now be started by Cloudmin using a wake-on-LAN packet, if supported by the system’s BIOS.
- The monitor for new and newly restarted KVM instances can now be accessed via a TCP port, which allows Cloudmin to perform some configuration changes without requiring a reboot.
- Virtual disks and network interfaces can now be added to and removed from running KVM instances without a reboot, assuming they support PCI hot-plugging.
- KVM virtual systems can now be paused and resumed, and live migrated to another host without requiring a shutdown.
It also fixes several minor bugs found since the last release. As always, please report any problems you find in this new version via the issue tracker.
