Re: [Xen-devel] state of process on de-scheduled vCPU

Hi all,

I wonder if the state of process in guestOS will change when the corresponding vCPU is de-scheduled. In other words, when a vCPU uses up its credits and its state become over, how about the process context or softirq context in guest OS on this vCPU? Does it still maintain the same running state? Thanks.

I'm not sure what you mean "the same running state".  The state of the vcpu -- the registers, the guest memory relating to it, and the fact that it's not blocked -- is the same.  From the guest's perspective, it has temporarily frozen in time until it gets to run again.  Does that answer your question?
