I've started playing with vzdump and it reminded me that I have one question about OpenVZ: What is the difference between root and the private area?


When VE is stopped you have contents only in private/<veid> directory. When VE starts simfs filesystem is mounted on root/<veid>. Simfs is a mirror-like filesystem: it mirrors the contents of private/<veid> to root/<veid>. The reason to use simfs is to isolate VE's filesystem from HN's one.

As concerns vzdump - I've never used it. So the question is mainly to its author.

Vasily.
