5.6.3 Live Migrate Channel

The Live Migrate channel is used to migrate virtual machines from one Oracle VM Server to another in a server pool, without changing the status of the virtual machine.

While live migration should not be occurring frequently, during a live migration network traffic may spike. This could cause interruption to other services, particularly the cluster heartbeat functionality used for server pool clustering. As a result, configuring a separate network for this purpose can improve the performance and availability of other services within the environment.
