To my surprise it claimed I was using QEMU, not KVM! To verify, I did "nova hypervisor-show 1" and hypervisor_type is listed as QEMU. It looks like there's a bug in launchpad on this subject: https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1195361 Apparently it's only a cosmetic issue. Also, there's a proposed fix here: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/40803/ Some people are arguing that QEMU is the actual hypervisor and that KVM is simply an acceleration technique. Works for me.
