Setting up vnd devices for disks
I'm setting up my dom0 and would like to organize all the disk space for
the hosted domains in one place (/srv/xen). And I want to do it in the
most flexible and/or efficient way.
From what I understand we can use vnd devices for disks in our guest
environments and this is somehow a good thing. But why? Since there's
not too much info on this topic out there, from what I can tell, I have
a few questions:
o What benefits do we gain from using vnd devices in our xen
configurations over regular files?
o What's the correct practice for managing vnd devices? Other than
having a script to vnconfig them each time we boot, how should
these be tracked?
Any help clarifying this would be great. I'm using netbsd-5/amd64 for
dom0 with a recent xenkernel33 and xentools33.
