Linux on Sun Logical Domains

Horizontal cpu scaling and well designed architectures for hardware
hypervisors can make virtualization easy and fun! Such is the case
for Sun Niagara and LDOMs. The layers of technology making up
Sun LDOMs will be presented, along with tradeoff analysis along
the way. Subsequently, the port of Linux to work on Sun LDOMs
will be presented in detail. Other issues discussed include
intra-guest memory exporting, the use of protocol "channels" for
domain service and virtual I/O communication, and the prototyping
of the LDOM protocol in userspace during the Linux port.
