Would you know if the virt drivers are also packaged along with this? I had tried out devstack based install on fedora 21. ( had to install the virtualization preview repo as well). This was required to test out new features in Kilo like NUMA aware scheduling etc

I took your question to #RDO (on freenode IRC) and got the following answer:

There's now qemu-kvm-ev available from the Virtualization SIG, but not sure if it is published yet

in the meantime, the old answer posted in another thread is still valid:

i.e. enable ovirt repo to get their qemu-kvm-rhev rebuilds. And they have qemu-kvm-ev now: , but the repo URL is the same.

We are planning to check virtsig repos, if they're available, we could look at inheriting from them in rdo-release.

Thanks for the response. I think even the libvirt drivers packaged in fedora 21 might not be sufficient to evaluate the latest features in Kilo. I am hoping more information would be provided once the GA rdo package for Kilo is available.

Mentioned repos as far I understand might bring new features to qem-kvm on CentOS 7.1 as clone of RHEL 7.1. and bring qemu-kvm-ev to CentOS 7.1, but not to F21 (22)

I can install RDO Kilo right now on CentOS 7.1 via , then enable Ovirt Repo and update QEMU/KVM on compute node as post packstack installation procedure, however you keep speaking about F21, what doesn't make any sense for me.

"however you keep speaking about F21, what doesn't make any sense for me." I'm assuming this was a question for me. We have been using fedora for sometime now and i am trying to figure out which version of fedora i can use to try packstack based Kilo installation on. (F21/22 etc..)

UPDATE 07/31/2017
I believe that testing done here :-
is addressing your question for
1. RDO Kilo on CentOS 7.1 with Hypervisor upgraded up to qemu-kvm-ev-2.1.2-23
2. RDO Kilo on Fedora Server 22 (qemu-kvm-2.3.0-6.fc22.x86_64)

Does this post :-
address your question ?

This is very informative. I was specifically looking for information about how to ensure that the relevant version of virtualization drivers would be made available with the rdo kilo rpm. Or at least a recommendation about which versions to use for evaluating the NUMA related features in Kilo
