Xen 3.0 Virtualization Interface Guide

7.1 Guidelines

A few principles govern the operation of the store:

  • Domains should only modify the contents of their own directories.
  • The setup protocol for a device channel should simply consist of entering the configuration data into the store.
  • The store should allow device discovery without requiring the relevant device drivers to be loaded: a Xen ``bus'' should be visible to probing code in the guest.
  • The store should be usable for inter-tool communications, allowing the tools themselves to be decomposed into a number of smaller utilities, rather than a single monolithic entity. This also facilitates the development of alternate user interfaces to the same functionality.
