Introduction to the Suite of Programs

This project is no longer being maintained by its original author, Colin Dean. The project is being migrated to GitHub, where it will be managed by a group of active users of xvp: https://github.com/xvpsource/xvp.

™ comprises a suite of open source programs for management of virtual machines running on Citrix® XenServer™ and Xen Cloud Platform (XCP), developed by Colin Dean. Using the web based interface, you can access VM consoles, view VM properties, change their DVD drives, perform power operations (boot, reboot, shutdown, suspend, etc), manage VM snapshots, and migrate VMs between server hosts in a pool, all from a web browser. Supported web browsers include ones that run on Linux, Mac OS X, Windows and iOS. VM console access is not supported on iOS.

There are several components: , , , , and . For details of each of these, click on the links to the left.

The simplest setup option is to import the pre-built self-contained VM into one of your XenServer or XCP pools. This appliance includes all the separate components, and an easy to use menu-driven program to configure them.

There is a mailing list, for announcements, discussions and raising problems, and all users of xvp are encouraged to join.
