I am working with openstack and I want to pin vcpus to pcpus in guest xml. Now, the pinning operation can be done using

virsh vcpupin guestname vcpu pcpu

But I want to do it using python API. I investigated the openstack code and found out that get_guest_config function in libvirt/ is responsible for generation of guest XML file. Now, I tried to put vcpupin attribute here by guest.vcpupin or guest.cputune_vcpupin but none of them is working. Any idea what am I doing wrong? Or is this functionality not available with openstack?

It looks like the vcpu_pin_set is coming directly from /etc/nova/nova.conf. Maybe you are satisfied with this global setting?

Yeah, well it restricts the pcpus where my instance can run, but it doesn't pin vcpus. I want the vcpupin attribute in guest xml.

Okay, I figured it out. You need to define vcpupin in config file and after that it works.
