user story

As a test developer of long running tests I want to create intermediate qemu snapshots to speed up test development

acceptance criteria

  • qemu snapshots can be created using a command from tests
  • a new job can continue from the snapshot using "SKIPTO=…"


  • research how qemu snapshots are created
  • add command to testapi (or "test debugging api"?) to make snapshot at specific point
  • extend documentation

further notes

example: "livecdreboot" is a long running test. It would be helpful if snapshots could be created e.g. when the "reboot now" window is detected (and stopped).

I think by now we handle this better with more fine grained test module steps which allows to take snapshots in between each
