4.1 Xend

The Xend node control daemon performs system management functions related to virtual machines. It forms a central point of control of virtualized resources, and must be running in order to start and manage virtual machines. Xend must be run as root because it needs access to privileged system management functions.

An initialization script named /etc/init.d/xend is provided to start Xend at boot time. Use the tool appropriate (i.e. chkconfig) for your Linux distribution to specify the runlevels at which this script should be executed, or manually create symbolic links in the correct runlevel directories.

Xend can be started on the command line as well, and supports the following set of parameters:

# xend start start xend, if not already running
# xend stop stop xend if already running
# xend restart restart xend if running, otherwise start it
# xend status indicates xend status by its return code

A SysV init script called xend is provided to start xend at boot time. make install installs this script in /etc/init.d. To enable it, you have to make symbolic links in the appropriate runlevel directories or use the chkconfig tool, where available. Once xend is running, administration can be done using the xm tool.
