    Script to gracefully power off KVM instances · 5d9e167a
    Miguel Di Ciurcio Filho authored
    When a node is running KVM instances and that node is rebooted or
    shutdown, the gnt-noded daemon is finished and leaves the KVM instances
    running. Latter on in the shutdown process, all remaining processes
    receive SIGTERM as usual, meaning that the KVM instances are all
    terminated, without running a proper shutdown procedure inside the
    guests.
    
    When using Xen, the xendomains script will take care of gracefully
    powering down the instances, but for KVM there is nothing like that.
    
    This patch adds an script that sends the "system_powerdown" command to
    all running instances, and it could be useful for people using KVM.
    
    This patch is a response for issue #126
