Subject: [PATCH v2 for-6.2 0/6] push backup with fleecing
Date: Wed, 21 Jul 2021 17:04:18 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210721140424.163701-1-vsementsov@virtuozzo.com> (raw)

Hi all!

Here is push-backup with fleecing. What is it:

1. Make fleecing scheme

guest blk
  |
  |root
  v
copy-before-write filter  -------> temp qcow2
  |                                  |
  |file                              | backing
  V                                  |
active disk <-------------------------

2. Start backup job from temp qcow2 to final remote target (NBD or
   something)

Benefit in comparison with simple backup job: for remote final target
write operations are not very fast. And guest have to wait for
copy-before-write operations. With fleecing scheme target for
copy-before-write operations is local qcow2 file with faster access than
actual backup target. So, guest is less disturbed by copy-before-write
operations.

Based-on: <20210721100555.45594-1-vsementsov@virtuozzo.com>
   ([PATCH v6 00/33] block: publish backup-top filter)

v2:
01: changed to simply check s->target->perm
06: make explicit immutable-source parameter instead of auto-detecting

Vladimir Sementsov-Ogievskiy (6):
  block/block-copy: use write-unchanged for fleecing scheme
  block/copy-before-write: require BLK_PERM_WRITE_UNCHANGED for fleecing
  block: share writes on backing child of fleecing node
  block: blk_root(): return non-const pointer
  qapi: backup: add immutable-source paramter
  iotests/image-fleecing: test push backup with fleecing
