Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

You just got a brand new CPU and you want your Virtual Machines to use the shiny new features in that new CPU, what is necessary to make that happen?

In this talk, I plan to present the low-level details and all the layers involved to make sure new CPU features are available for KVM guest OSes, starting from the hardware itself, the KVM kernel code, QEMU, libvirt, and management systems that let the user configure virtual machines. I plan to explain how this affects KVM features like live migration, command-line compatibility, and Stable Guest ABI.
