user Hard Disks
Abiquo periodically checks hypervisors for changes in virtual machines, including CPU, RAM and datastore disks. You can set an abiquo.property to control the frequency of these checks (abiquo.vsm.vmsyncfrequency.<PLUGIN> see Abiquo Configuration Properties#vsm). If a virtual machine datastore disk is resized, Abiquo updates the size registered in Abiquo. If Abiquo detects a change in the datastore used for the virtual machine primary disk, it updates the value in Abiquo and publishes the following tracer:
Abiquo support for storage moves and motion is described in the tables for each hypervisor.
In Abiquo all iSCSI storage is persistent, i.e. changes persist after the virtual machine is undeployed. NFS storage is also persistent.
Datastore Hard Disks are not persistent. When the user undeploys a virtual machine with disks on the hypervisor datastore, these disks will be destroyed.
