[openstack-dev] [nova] Questions about guest NUMA and memory binding policies

I'm the owner of bp support-libvirt-vcpu-topology,
There are four main reasons that I did not continue to work on it:
1. the design proposal has not confirmed by core developers of nova
2. this bp is not accepted in Icehouse development stage
3. Daniel expects that this bp should consider together with the other one numa-aware-cpu-binding, but I have no idea to do this for now
4. I have no enough time to do this at this moment

Thanks for your reply.
I didn't know why the blueprint numa-aware-cpu-binding seems to have no more progress until read the two mails mentioned in your mail.
The use case analysis in the mails are very clear, they are also what I concern about.
I agree that we shouldn't provide pCPU/vCPU mapping for the ending user and how to provide them for the user need more consideration.
The use cases I concern more are the pCPU's exclusively use(pCPU:vCPU=1:1) and the guest numa.
