suspend vm

suspend vm vm_name


Suspends a virtual machine (VM).

Syntax Description

vm Specifies a VM.
vm_name Specifies the VM name to suspend.



Usage Guidelines

Suspending a VM pauses, or freezes, the CPU state of the guest VM. The VM remains in an active state, and committed resources (such as memory and ports) remain committed. This state is not persistent across switch reboots or the virtMgr process restarts. Such events function as "power off resets" to the guest operating system.

To resume the VM, use the resume vm vm_name command.


The following example pauses the VM "vm1":

# suspend vm vm1


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 30.7.
