What's Included in This Update

This update for Parallels Virtual Automation 6.0 provides a number of new features and bug fixes.

Problem Description

This update contains the following new features:

  • Performance limits for the vzbackup and vzrestore utilities were implemented. Two parameters were added to the global configuration file, /etc/vz/vz.conf:
    • VZ_TOOLS_IOLIMIT=iolimit — disk I/O bandwidth limit in Bps,
    • VZ_TOOLS_IOPSLIMIT=iopslimit — disk I/O operations per second limit.
  • You can now set the folder where virtual machine backups will be stored by default on a Hardware Node. The new VM Backup Folder option is available on the Parallels Server Settings screen, accessible from the Tasks > Configure subsection on the Hardware Node’s Summary screen.
