On both Guest machine and host machine, I am using Ubuntu 12.04. As a hypervisor I am using KVM. I want to perform some experiments related to boot-storm and I have created all other scripts to create VM, delete VM and start VM. But I don't know how to measure boot time for each VM.
Though not necessary but it will be good if the boot time has one to one mapping to VM in some sense, by name or by mac address etc.
Boot time: I want to do ssh from host and when its successful I will consider that the VM has been booted up successfully.
The solution should be scalable as I want to perform experiment for 100-150 VMs.
1) How to get the IP address of a guest VM from Host machine ?
2) Mapping of Domainname-> IP
3) Mapping of IP -> Boot time
