How can we find out which Red Hat products supports which qemu-kvm, qemu-system-x86_64 version?

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • We have installed Red Hat Enterprise 7.6 with RT Kernel and KVM RT from Red Hat Openstack.

  • We need to use ivshmem. The installed version of qemu-system-x86_64 (version 2.0) does not seem to support this.

  • Does Red Hat provide a newer version or?

  • Could it be that we have the wrong version because we started with Red Hat Enterprise instead of Openstack?


  • Red Hat OpenStack Platform 14.0 (RHOSP)
  • Red Hat OpenStack Platform 13.0 (RHOSP)
