the .exists event needs to support libvirt and not just Xen

Registered by Sandy Walsh on 2013-04-24

the .exists event is an end-of-day notification that an instance is active. It is currently only supported with the Xen virt driver. Libvirt needs this as well.

Whiteboard

We don't have facilities for doing libvirt work, but this bp is needed for ceilometer's adoption of notifications (vs agents). So I can't assign someone to take it nor set the milestone.

Not sure how to proceed here?

We need to find a volunteer that will commit to doing this work before adding it to the havana release plan. --russellb

I looked into this a bit today and I'm still unsure what is needed here. Once I got my nova.conf settings right I was able to see .exists notifications sent from conductor. I'll paste the message below so you can tell me if it's what you're looking for.
